Senators urge Trump admin to safeguard critical military and dual-use technology from China 24.5.2018 General News
A bipartisan group of more than two dozen Senators today urged the Trump administration to safeguard critical military and dual-use technology from China. There can be no question that China seeks to surpass the US both economically and militarily and become the world's foremost superpower, and neither the federal government nor the private US companies should aid and abet that effort, the senators wrote in a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. "As such, we implore you to reject any proposal to soften restrictions on the transfer to China of US-made military technologies and advanced dual-use technologies, including semiconductors," said the letter, which among others was signed by Senators Chuck Schumer, Marco Rubio, Dianne Feinstein, Susan Collins, Sherrod Brown, Mark Warner, Ted Cruz, Kamala Harris Chuck Grassley and John Cornyn.

In a statement, it also said Malhotra also goes on to note that psychologists, sociologists, and law-enforcement officials ...
