The broader Entity List update included 27 organizations and people, including 13 in Pakistan accused of backing the country's "unsafeguarded" nuclear or ballistic missile programs.
This is unlikely to put a stop to China's military uses of quantum computing when the country may need to research and develop much of the technology in-house.
