China's new law targets Taiwan

Chinese lawmakers on Monday unanimously passed a controversial law, which authorises the use of military force to thwart Taiwan's moves to attain independence.

Under the Anti-Secession Law, Beijing can use 'non-peaceful means and other necessary measures' to thwart 'Taiwan's independence' to achieve national reunification.

Unfazed by US criticism, some 3,000 Chinese lawmakers endorsed the law tabled by the Communist Party-led government on the last day of the ten-day annual session of the National People's Congress, China's parliament, in Beijing.
