China reaffirms that the new anti-terror law relating to cyber surveillance complies with the US and other countries policies and practices, especially when it comes to combatting terrorism attacks.

Once passed, the anti-terror law would entail that authorities will get access to the encryption keys of tech companies, creating “back doors” within their systems, granting access to the government – an idea that fears the US government.

President Barack Obama urged the country to change the statute, directly addressing the Chinese president, a statement that Fu Ying, China’s National People’s Congress, spokeswoman regarded as proposal misinterpretation. She further states that the law in fact, prioritizes cyber security.
