The Chinese technology Xiaomi has filed a lawsuit against the US Defense and Treasury departments for having included it on a blacklist of companies with alleged links to the Chinese Army, according to the official press of the Asian country today.Xiaomi thus joins other Chinese technology companies such as ByteDance -developer of TikTok- or Huawei, which have also filed lawsuits against the US government after being sanctioned by Washington during the years of the recently completed Trump Administration.

In the middle of the month, the US included the company in the list of companies considered by Washington as controlled by the Chinese Armed Forces. According to a decree signed by the now former President Donald Trump, American investors will have to dispose of their stakes in those companies. The list also includes Huawei, the video surveillance equipment manufacturer Hikvision, the chip producer SMIC, the aircraft manufacturer Comac and several state-owned companies in key sectors such as nuclear, energy or telecommunications.

The intention of the Department of Defense, which described these firms as “military companies of communist China”, was “to counteract the strategy of military-civil fusion” of Beijing, which supposedly tries to modernize the military capabilities of the Asian country with technology and knowledge obtained by “companies, universities and research programs that appear to be civil entities”.
