BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s foreign ministry said on Monday that FedEx Corp should offer a proper explanation, after the firm apologized for refusing to ship a Huawei Technologies phone sent from Britain to the United States.
Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang made the comment at a daily news briefing in Beijing.
FedEx had apologized saying it was an “operational error” after PC Magazine, an American computer magazine, said on Friday FedEx refused to ship the phone.
