China slams US defence act over trade restrictions

China slams US defence act over trade restrictionsBeijing on Thursday said it “firmly opposes” trade restrictions included in a new US defence act, having already admonished the bill for interfering in China’s internal affairs. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) — signed into law last week — bars the use of federal funds to buy railcars and buses from China, and slows the lifting of sanctions on tech giant Huawei. It comes as Beijing and Washington have agreed to a temporary truce in their bruising nearly two-year trade war, with a “phase-one” deal that has rolled back tariffs on billions of dollars worth of goods.
