Joe Biden Blocks, China Calls America Slander

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Chinese biotechnology company WuXi AppTec ensures the company is safe. They stated that the company does not pose a national security risk to the United States.

This statement was revealed by Wuxi AppTec following accusations from US lawmakers to impose sanctions on the company registered in Shanghai, China.

A group of US lawmakers told top officials of President Joe Biden's administration recently that WuXi AppTec's ties to the Chinese Communist Party and military threaten US national security.

Recently, the US Congress has introduced a Bill that would restrict federally funded healthcare providers from allowing biotechnology companies including WuXi AppTec to access the genetic information of the US public.

WuXi AppTec previously said it was not a security risk to any country.

“Our company firmly believes that WuXi AppTec will not pose a national security threat to the United States,” WuXi AppTec said in a statement, quoted by Reuters, Monday (19/2/2024).

“Even if the US government reviewed the company, the conclusion would be the same,” the statement continued.

In a separate statement, WuXi AppTec reiterated that it does not have a human genomics business, and its existing business does not collect human genome data.
