BEIJING - China is set to pass its controversial new anti-terrorism law on Sunday, the largely rubber-stamp parliament said on Friday, despite US criticism about its cyber provisions and concerns over human rights.

The draft law, which could require technology firms to install "back doors" in products or hand over sensitive information such as encryption keys to the government, has also been criticised by some Western business groups.

US President Barack Obama has said that he had raised concern about the law directly with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

In a brief statement, China's National People's Congress said it would hold a news briefing on Sunday to talk about the law, following the end of parliament's latest law-making session.
