In a statement, the company said it was disappointing that despite its efforts, it had not received a clear direction on how and when its apps could be reinstated. "The Indian government has the responsibility to follow WTO rules and market principles and protect the legitimate rights and interests of global investors including Chinese companies". "Ensuring the privacy and security of all our users remains to be our topmost priority".
