Complying with the agreement, we have negotiated and confirmed that all tolls will be paid back.

Xiaomi also pointed out that there were many false information in the relevant public account articles of Tianjin Expressway Group, and it is still communicating with the other party. At present, the relevant public account articles of Tianjin Expressway Group have been deleted.
