Beijing decried a U.S. bill to curtail China’s economic and military ambitions, as Chinese lawmakers meet this week to discuss measures to counter U.S. sanctions.

The Foreign Affairs Committee of China’s National People’s Congress (NPC) issued a strongly worded statement Wednesday against the sprawling $250 billion bill passed by the Senate a day earlier, which supports U.S. high-tech investment and provides funding to counter the political influence of the Chinese Communist Party.

“The bill is full of Cold War mentality and ideological prejudice,” it said. “It slanders China’s development path and its domestic and foreign policies.”
