The trouble with the agrement is...

That the Chinese government has for many decades considered the acquisition of foreign intellectual property, by whatever means necessary, to be a matter of national policy. Consequently, ALL of their espionage/hacking/theft of trade secrets is counted as a national-security effort. No problem agreeing to this pact; they've just agreed to avoid a set of actions they happen to define as a NULL set.
