BEIJING, March 4 (UPI) -- Chinese laws will always be geared to national conditions and reality, a spokesman said Friday.

Defending the country's socialist legal system, legislative spokesman Li Zhaoxing told reporters such laws will consider but not copy foreign action, Xinhua news agency reported.

"We won't enact laws that do not conform to China's national conditions and reality. And laws that are required by reality will be enacted with no delay," Li said.

Li, spokesman for the annual session of the National People's Congress, said China will not enact laws for problems that can be solved by other means.

China's comprehensive socialist legal system announced in January ensures the Communist Party will always spearhead socialism and the country will continue to shape socialism, Xinhua said.

Li said 239 national laws, more than 690 administrative regulations and nearly 8,600 local legal documents had been enacted as of the end of February.
