US President Joseph Biden canceled prohibitions for the work of the short video Tiktok and Wechat Messenger in the United States imposed by the former American leader. At the same time, Biden signed a new decree, who binds the Ministry of Commerce to carefully check applications that can potentially be a threat to the national security of the country.
Byjen’s order cancels a series of decrees of the former US President Donald Trump (Donald Trump), which he signed last year to introduce a number of restrictions for popular Tiktok services and WECHAT, owned by Chinese companies bymedance and Tencent, respectively. Until the complete application of applications, the case did not come about due to the prolonged trials, but now all previous prohibitions are canceled. Official representatives of Tiktok and Wechat have not yet commented on this issue.
«The administration is committed to promoting an open, functionally compatible, reliable and secure Internet, the protection of human rights online and offline, as well as supporting a dynamic global digital economy, “the representative of the Presidential Administration commented on this issue.
It is assumed that in the future the US Department of Commerce will be jointly with federal agencies to work on creating recommendations on protection against collecting, sales and transfer to third parties of confidential data of American consumers. It is also worth noting that the current order of Byyden does not affect past decisions of the US Foreign Investment Committee (CFIUS). After a trampa, this committee insisted on the need to sell the American part of the Tiktok business of one of the local companies. It was assumed that she was buying Oracle, but ultimately the transaction did not take place.
