The Chinese foreign ministry on Tuesday (June 22) said the US Commerce Department rescinding bans on Chinese apps such as TikTok and WeChat was a "positive step" in the correct direction.

The US on Monday (June 21) rescinded a list of prohibited transactions with TikTok and WeChat that were issued in September as the Trump administration sought to block new US downloads of both Chinese-owned apps.
