China has adopted a law on countering foreign sanctions

China’s top legislature on Thursday passed a law to counter foreign sanctions, China Central Television reported.

The law was adopted at the 29th session of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People’s Congress in Beijing.

At the end of March this year, EU countries, as well as the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada, imposed sanctions on individuals and organizations from China on charges of violating the rights of Uighurs in Xinjiang. China has imposed retaliatory measures, including against the UK. In addition, in March, the United States announced the expansion of sanctions against 24 officials from China and Hong Kong for actions to “reduce the autonomy” of the administrative region, China protested and promised to take retaliatory measures.
