Foreign companies doing business in China should adhere to the country’s own definition of its borders, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Monday in response to U.S. criticism of a recent aviation authority request as “Orwellian nonsense.”

Respecting “China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity” as well as the “national feeling of the Chinese people” should be a “basic principle” for foreign companies doing business in China, Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Geng Shuang told reporters at his regular news conference Monday.
