China's legislature today (June 10) voted to pass a sanctions response law. This is the legal support for Beijing's foreign anti-sanctions measures.
According to the South China Morning Post, the bill was passed at the closing session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of China. However, the details of the law have yet to be made public.

Chinese state media reported that the move was aimed at creating a legal basis for China to respond to sanctions.

China has taken countermeasures against US, EU, UK and Canada sanctions against it.

The law is by far the most powerful tool for China to respond to foreign sanctions after the country's Ministry of Commerce issued a regulation in January requiring Chinese companies to report restrictions on foreign imports. abroad with commercial or economic activities.

Tian Feilong, an associate professor at Beihang University's law school who participated in the consultations on the new law, said discussions on the law began last year when Donald Trump was still US President. However, China still waits to see how Trump's successor will approach its relationship with China.
