Xiaomi denies involvement with the CCP Military after US Blacklist
Mobile brand Xiaomi has vehemently denied their involvement with the Comunist China Party’s military in anyway or form after it was tagged as such by the US government a few days ago.
The Trump administration added the brand to the list of products, companies and brands that they are blacklisting and prohibiting from entering the country due reportedly to its ties with the CCP. You can read up on that report from Reuters HERE.
So Xiaomi decided to answer that allegation online and this is what they said:
The Company has been in compliance with law and operating in compliance with the relevant laws and regulations of jurisdictions where it conducts its businesses. The Company reiterates that it provides products and services for civilian and commercial use.
The Company confirms that it is not owned, controlled, or affiliated with the Chinese military, and is not a “Communist Chinese Military Company” defined under the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act). The company will take appropriate course of actions to protect the interests of the company and its shareholders.
The Company will make further announcements as and when appropriate.

Remember the same thing happened to Huawei a year or so ago. Looks like the Trump administration ain’t done yet just days before US President elect Joe Biden is sworn in.
