China announced new anti-espionage regulation
China has announced a new anti-espionage regulation in between the time of worsening relations with the world’s powerful nations and it is renewing focus on national security ahead of a key Communist Party anniversary later this year.
Anti-Espionage: It is an action that is taken secretly by a country to prevent another country from discovering its military, political and industrial secrets.
Chinese senior official at the ministry of state security said that “in a foreign land, espionage and intelligence agencies and hostile forces have intensified infiltration into China and broadened their strategies of stealing secrets in various fields, which strike a pose to a serious threat to China’s national security and interests.”
The new regulation will allow the authority of national security to prepare a draft for companies and organizations that are susceptible to foreign infiltration and require listed institutes to adopt security measures to prevent foreign infiltration. According to experts opinion new rules may also be used to bring commercial companies, universities, media, and think tanks under the government’s control to monitor and report the activities of Western entities which are operating in China.
This new regulation will come on July 1 as it is the Communist Party’s 100th anniversary and after that China marked the sixth National Security Education Day earlier this month.
