BEIJING, March 4 (Xinhua) -- China will always make laws based on national conditions, while considering, but not copying, foreign legislative experience, the spokesman for China's top legislature, said Friday.

"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," said Li Zhaoxing, the spokesman.

He added that China will not use legislation to solve all problems, since legislation is not necessary to tackle the problems that can be solved by other means.

Li, spokesman for the Fourth Session of the 11th National People's Congress (NPC), made the remarks while answering a question on China's socialist legal system at a press conference ahead of the session's opening on Saturday.

In January, China announced the establishment of a comprehensive socialist legal system.

The system ensures, legally and institutionally, that the Communist Party of China will always spearhead socialism in China, and that China will continue on the road of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

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

These laws and regulations have formed a multi-tier socialist legal system with Chinese characteristics, he said.
