A standing committee of the Congress unanimously approved the bill. Beijing says it aims to tackle sedition, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces. It has drawn international criticism for being at odds with the "one country, two systems" policy agreed by China when it took control of the former British colony in 1997.
