NEW YORK -- The U.S. Commerce Department said Monday that it will add 12 foreign organizations and individuals, including six Chinese companies, to its list of entities to which it has in effect banned exports of sensitive American technologies.

"We cannot allow China's civil-military integration strategy to undermine U.S. national security through prohibited technology transfer plots orchestrated by state actors," said Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in a news release. "This designation complements criminal actions [the department's Bureau of Industry and Security] and the Department of Justice are taking to penalize the theft of controlled U.S. technology."
