Beijing calls for just treatment of firms after 'positive step in the right direction'

US President Joe Biden on Wednesday reversed former president Donald Trump's executive orders that sought to ban downloads of the Chinese-owned apps TikTok and WeChat in the United States.

Biden replaced them with a review process by the Commerce Department to determine whether apps controlled by a foreign adversary present risks to US national security and the security of personal data, the White House said.

After the review, the government can "take action, as appropriate", the administration said. The order does not target any companies specifically.
