A senior European Union trade official said on Friday that the US had the bloc’s “full” commitment to the goal of choking China’s semiconductor industry.
“We fully agree with the objective of depriving China of the most advanced chips”, Thierry Breton, the EU’s internal-market commissioner, said at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies.
Workers at largest iPhone factory clash with police in China
Video circulating on social media alleges to show workers at the world’s largest iPhone factory clashing with police in China.
This footage shows workers running as riot police detained some of the protesters at the Foxconn factory.
Around 200,000 people work at the Zhengzhou plant, with the protesters demanding better working conditions.
It comes in the wake of the imposition of several Covid restrictions due to rising case numbers.
Foxconn earlier said it was using “closed-loop management”, which refers to employees living at their workplace with no outside contact.
