NewsDio desk : The US after gathering series of concrete knowledge and information about how Chinese groups have been charged of creating computers to strengthen its military, has blacklisted seven Chinese groups. 

The Biden administration has enforced the mechanism which would make it very tough for China to make use of the US technology. 

The US has come up with a ‘blacklist; highlighting three companies along with four branches of China’s National Supercomputing Center.

The move has stopped the American companies to export its technology without proper mechanism which is needed for approval. 

The move is being seen as a security measure where there has been a quick reaction by the US commerce department which said that the groups were manufacturing super computers which will be used by the Chinese “military actors” to produce weapons of mass destruction.
