Inclusion of the measure was seen as a bid to target China.

China and the U.S. are now locked in a trade war following Trump's slapping of additional tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, as well as dozens of Chinese-made products.

"The U.S. side should objectively and fairly treat Chinese investors, and avoid CFIUS becoming an obstacle to investment cooperation between Chinese and U.S. firms", the ministry said in a statement.

China expressed today strong dissatisfaction with the negative China-relative content included in the recently signed National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 in the United States.

Trump signed the law at the US Army's Fort Drum base in upstate NY on his way back to Washington after a 12-day working vacation at his golf club in New Jersey.

US President Donald Trump signed a Dollars 716 billion defence policy bill on Monday that authorises military spending and includes watered-down controls on US government contracts with China's ZTE Corp and Huawei Technologies Co Ltd. "In honor of that sacred obligation, I will put my signature on the National Defense Authorization Act", said the US President.

The president made a speech before his signature at Fort Drum, a northern NY military base, but didn't mention the ailing senator's name. The Act bans United States government agencies from using products of major Chinese communication equipment manufacturers, including ZTE, to prevent leaks of confidential information.

The bill also follows the administration's request for 77 F-35 fighter jets and goes beyond the its request for Navy ships, authorizing a total of 13 new vessels.

The report is expected to include an assessment of Turkey's participation in the F-35 program as well as the risks that would be posed by the country's purchase of the Russian S-400 missile defense system.

"The United States should strengthen defence and security cooperation with Taiwan to support the development of capable, ready and modern defence forces necessary for Taiwan to maintain a sufficient self-defence capability", the act states.

The Chinese Commerce Ministry said on Tuesday it would "comprehensively asses the contents" of the defense act, focusing on how the policy will impact Chinese firms.
