China has targeted foreign sanctions in response to power politics. On Thursday, the Chinese Communist Party passed an anti-sanctions law aimed at boosting Beijing’s authority against international pressure.

The measures allow Chinese authorities to refuse to issue visas as well as freeze a person’s assets in mainland China. Officials claim the law was implemented to safeguard China’s national sovereignty while undermining the authority of certain western countries.

“This law targets the unilateral sanctions against China that violates international law in international relations,” law professor Liao Shiping explained. “It is a response to all these sanctions and the countries that are enforcing them. Therefore, it is not a legislation targeting a specific country.”

The move comes just one week after Joe Biden expanded the U.S. blacklist on certain Chinese companies receiving investments from Americans.
