Washington: America, giving China another blow, has banned the importation of products made by Uyghur Muslims. The Trump administration has taken this step in light of the anti-Uygar and other anti-minority policies of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo has declared that we condemn the CCP’s forced labor of minorities for human rights violations. The United States will not import products that are against its values. Products made by the oppressed Uygars and other minorities in China will no longer enter the United States.
We strongly condemn the CCP’s human rights violations through its immoral use of forced labor, which is at odds with American values. We will not tolerate products exported to the United States made on the backs of Uyghurs and members of other ethnic and religious minority groups across China. pic.twitter.com/NOxpEVEhcR

Against oppressive policies
He added that America was against China’s oppressive policies. We cannot accept the way in which religious or ethnic minority groups are exploited in China. Beijing should immediately end the ongoing barbarism with minorities in Xinjiang province.

Put on restricted list
US Customs and Border Protection has issued an order banning the importation of goods from four companies operating in northwestern China. The United States suspects Ugar and other minorities of being forced into forced labor at these companies. Companies that manufacture clothing and cotton products, computer parts and hair products in Xinjiang Province have been listed in the list of banned companies.
Shipped to many countries
America believes that in these companies minorities are imprisoned and forced to work for them. The finished products are shipped by companies to many other countries, including America. Acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan says forced labor is not only a violation of human rights, but also runs counter to humanitarian attitudes . We cannot provide access to such a product in our country, which is prepared by torturing people.
They were banned
According to Acting Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli, Uigar and other minorities are imprisoned and forced to work at the Lope County No.4 Vocational Education and Training Center in Xinjiang Province. The companies that have been banned are Yili Zhuowan Garment Manufacturing Co, Ltd, Baoding LYSZD Trade and Business, Junggar Cotton & Linen Co and Hefei Bitland Information Technology.
