INTRO: TikTok has looked to separate itself from Beijing after it was restricted in India recently. In a letter to the Indian government dated June 28th, the organization’s CEO, Kevin Mayer, said that the Chinese government has never requested information of Indian clients. He further asserted that the organization wouldn’t conform to such a request regardless of whether Beijing requests it.

As indicated by Mayer, information from Indian clients is put away in servers in Singapore, and not in China. “I can affirm that the Chinese government has never made a solicitation to us for the TikTok information of Indian clients. In the event that we do ever get such a solicitation, later on, we would not agree”, he said. In the letter, Mayer likewise asserted that the organization is finding a way to secure the protection of its clients. “The protection of our clients, and the security and sway of India, are of most extreme significance to us. We have just reported our arrangements to construct a server farm in India”, he said.

The letter was sent in front of a potential gathering between the organization and government agents one week from now. The gathering would almost certainly search for an approach to get the boycott upset in the near future. Be that as it may, as indicated by sources cited by Reuters, such a stage appears to be improbable soon. TikTok was one of the 59 Chinese applications prohibited by the administration of India this week out of supposed national security concerns.
