GENEVA (Reuters) – The US decision to cut off a Chinese state-backed chipmaker from US suppliers amid allegations the firm stole intellectual property breaks World Trade Organization rules and aims to protect a US monopoly, China told a WTO meeting on Tuesday.

The meeting took place with the world’s top two economies already locked in a trade dispute and tit-for-tat tariff war.

Last month the US Commerce Department put Fujian Jinhua Integrated Circuit Co Ltd on a list of entities that cannot buy components, software and technology goods from US firms.

US semiconductor company Micron Technology Inc, a maker of memory chips with factories in Virginia and Utah, has accused Jinhua and Taiwanese partner United Microelectronics Corp of stealing its chip designs in a lawsuit in California.
