America bans imports from a major Chinese enterprise because of the Uighurs
The administration of US President Donald Trump has announced that it will ban importing cotton from China from the Xinjiang region, for allegedly being produced by forced labor and forced labor for the Uyghur minority persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party.
And the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corporation is one of the largest productive institutions in China, and this step is among many measures that the president's administration is looking into in recent weeks in power in order to tighten the US toward China.
"Exclusion orders" allow the commission to detain shipments based on suspected forced labor under long-standing US laws aimed at combating human trafficking, child labor, and other human rights violations.
The Trump administration is intensifying pressure on China over its treatment of the Uighur minority in Xinjiang. The United Nations says it has credible reports that one million Muslims are being detained in camps in the region, where they are forced to work.
