However, it said that Taiwanese officials are allowed to transit the United States to other countries.

SHANGHAI, - China's commerce ministry said on Tuesday that it would conduct a comprehensive assessment of the contents of the U.S. National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

In particular, the US President did not like provisions that prohibit the financing of any projects where the expected recognition of Russia's right to Crimea and has also banned military cooperation with Russian Federation until that time, until Russian Federation withdraws its troops from Ukraine.

Wu Qian, a spokesperson for the Ministry of National Defence, said during a press conference that "the China-related content in that act are filled with a Cold-War mindset, advocating confrontations between the two countries and interfering with China's internal affairs".

"Removal of this provision was a win for military credit unions, who need to be able to maintain unrestrained but discretionary access to military installations to ensure they are able to continue their service to military members and families", Credit Union National Association President and CEO Jim Nussle said in a statement.

The One China Policy says that there is only one China, one Chinese government and that Taiwan is a breakaway province.

While past USA defense reports have portrayed China as a competitor, this is the first time for the U.S. to explicitly state "long-term strategic competition with China" as its "principal priority", said Senior Colonel Zhao Xiaozhuo, director of the Secretariat's Office of the Xiangshan Forum, an annual security conference in Beijing.

Trump has lifted an earlier ban on USA companies selling to ZTE, allowing China's second-largest telecommunications equipment maker to resume business and putting him at odds with both Republican and Democratic lawmakers. "But this time, the report suggests that China has the potential to take the former Soviet Union's place as an all-around competitor to the USA".

Trump also touted the $716 billion in the forthcoming 2019 fiscal year military funding, and he talked about the economic success of his administration as well the United States as leaders in space.

Li Haidong, a researcher of USA studies at China Foreign Affairs University, said the Cold War mentality reflected in the defense act will undoubtedly disrupt global peace and security. Turkey and the United States are witnessing the worst bilateral ties ever over the detention of a USA pastor in Turkey.

"But China also needs to stay cool and firmly protect its core interests, which the new defense law clearly tries to undermine".
