SHANGHAI, May 10 (Reuters) - Microsoft plans to shut its MSN China portal in June but remains committed to China, the company said in a statement emailed to Reuters on Tuesday.

“Microsoft will be shutting down the MSN portal in China on June 7. Microsoft is deeply committed to China, offering a range of products including Windows 10, cloud services to customers, and hosting the largest research and development centre outside of the U.S.,” it said.
