China imposes controversial controls on foreign NGOs

China has passed a law imposing new regulations on foreign NGOs, Xinhua reportsChina’s Communist-controlled legislature passed a controversial law Thursday imposing new restrictions on foreign non-governmental organisations — a measure met with “deep concern” in Washington. “The United States is deeply concerned that China’s new Law on the Management of Foreign NGO Activities will further narrow space for civil society in China,” US National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said in a statement. “We urge China to respect the rights and freedoms of human rights defenders, journalists, business groups, development professionals, and all others who make up civil society, including by protecting the ability of foreign NGOs to operate in China,” he added.
