Washington: Days after India banned 59 Chinese mobile apps over security concerns, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Washington was looking at banning Chinese social media apps, including TikTok.

“We’re taking this very seriously,” Pompeo said in an interview to Fox News.

“With respect to Chinese apps on people’s cell phones, I can assure you the US will get this one right too… I don’t want to get out in front of the President (Donald Trump), but it’s something we’re looking at,” he said in the interview.

It maybe recalled that Pompeo had welcomed India’s move to ban Chinese mobile apps.

“We welcome India’s ban on certain mobile apps that serves as an appendage of the CCP’s (Chinese Communist Party) surveillance state. India’s clean app approach will boost India’s sovereignty. It will also boost India’s integrity and national security,” Pompeo had told reporters at a news conference.
