US President Joe Biden has signed in reads a bill that in effective way bans all imports of fully purchased goods or in departs from the Chinese province of Xinjiang. The measure is touted as a fight against forced labor.
The Uyghur law on the prevention of forced labor accusation China of keeping “Up to 1.8 million” Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz and members of other Muslim minority groups “in a system of extrajudicial mass internment camps “ in the Uyghur Autonomous Region of Xinjiang.
Once the legislation comes in in force force, all goods that can be proven produced in Xinjiang is assumed to be made with forced labor and barred entry into America market. US Customs and Border Protection will be cleared at issue exemptions for importers who to be able to submit “clear And prove convincing “ that their merchandise is not contaminated.
while it is remains to be seen how liberal issuance of exceptions would be, many observers predict that the law will constitute a de facto ban on all products are from Xinjiang. The policy dovetails with other US measures aimed at undermining China’s economy and politics power, like the campaign persuade US allies to join The Washington diplomat boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics.
Xinjiang is a major producer of cotton, agricultural products like tomatoes and polysilicon – a key component of solar panels. The Chinese province with a Muslim majority also has strategic importance location bordering on a number of countries, from Russia in the north in Afghanistan in the west in India in the South.
critics of China has long accused Beijing of suppress living ethnic minorities in Xinjiang through mass surveillance and incarceration, coercive birth control and forced labor, blaming the Chinese government of an attempted genocide.
Commenting on Biden’s signature of the new Legislative, Senator Marco Rubio, who co-presented the bill in January, I called him “The most important and impactful action taken so far by the United States to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable for their use of slave labor “.
It will radically change our relationship with Beijing.
China says its policies in the autonomous region successfully it has curbed radical Islamist ideology and helped to uplift people out of poverty. The accusations of persecution, Beijing officials insist, are lies aimed at justifying unilateral measures taken by the United States as part of his great-power competition against China.
Liu Pengyu, a spokesperson for the Chinese embassy in the United States, called the new law a “Serious violation of international law and regulations of international relations.” He called on Washington a “stop using Xinjiang to spread lies, interfere in inside of China affairs and contain China development” and said Beijing will respond to the move.
critics of the law says the United States is acting hypocritically regarding Xinjiang. They claim that the clear benefactors of the import ban are US cotton producers and defense contractors who happen to be in feet behind vocal accusations against Beijing over the alleged use of slave labor.
it couldn’t be more It is obvious that this bill is not intended to help Uyghurs in any shape or form, but rather impoverish them in so that they can – presumably – be more prone to revolt.
