China calls on the US to "end unwarranted attacks" on TikTok.
This is what Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said, on the hypothesis of a request by the US administration of President Joe Biden to the Chinese owners of TikTok, ByteDance, to sell their shares or face the ban on the popular app video sharing in the United States.
The aut aut of the Biden government was revealed by the Wall Street Journal, citing some sources.
ByteDance was founded in 2021 by Zhang
Yiming, Liang Rubo - the company's CEO - and other partners.
According to reports from TikTok executives, 60% of ByteDance's shares are controlled by global investors, 20% by its employees and another 20% by its founders, who in any case have greater voting rights.
