Xiaomi sues the US government



This month, to a surprise for everyone, the US government blacklisted Xiaomi by the Department of Defense due to suspicions that Xiaomi is somehow connected to the Chinese People’s Liberation Army. The sanctions in this case prohibit American investments in Xiaomi, and also force the current shareholders of Xiaomi to sell their securities by November this year. The day after that high-profile decision by the US government, Xiaomi released a statement in which it explained that it had no ties with the Chinese armed forces, and also announced that it was going to take “an appropriate course of action to protect the interests” of shareholders and the company as a whole. Well, now it’s time to turn the course of action into reality: Xiaomi has filed a lawsuit against the US government.

Xiaomi is suing the US Department of Defense and the US Treasury. In her statement of claim, she stressed that she is not in any way controlled by the Chinese government or the military and is not associated with them. The company also mentioned that it produces products and services exclusively for civil and commercial use. It is also noted that Xiaomi will suffer imminent, serious and irreparable damage if the restrictions take effect.

How the confrontation between Xiaomi and the US government will end is unclear, but many experts agree that under the new president, the practice of blacklisting Chinese companies can be canceled, as well as the decision taken in a hurry under the leadership of Donald Trump, because Xiaomi entered the blacklist USA is one of the last. Earlier this happened with the well-known drone manufacturer DJI. Joe Biden in the first days of his reign had already canceled a lot of decisions of his predecessor, and it is very possible that the same fate will befall the “black list” – if not entirely, then at least partially.
