China's foreign ministry, responding to U.S. criticism of Beijing's ban on U.S. chipmaker Micron Technology, said the United States had included Chinese firms and individuals on all kinds of lists in the past and imposed restrictions.

Foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning said such "economic coercion" was unacceptable, in response to a query on the United States saying China's ban on Micron was "not based in fact".

China's cyberspace regulator said late on Sunday that Micron had failed its network security review and that it would block operators of key infrastructure from buying from the company.
