The tensions between the US and China, which are already in tension, have worsened after the Kovid-19 crisis. US President Donald Trump blames China for the worldwide outbreak of the corona virus epidemic.
Prohibition on import of products such as computer parts and hair products
Relations between the two have worsened due to allegations of human rights violations and technology piracy in Hong Kong's autonomy, Tibet, Xinjiang province. The US Interior Ministry said in a statement on Monday that imports of products such as cotton, apparel, computer parts and hair products are prevented.
The fifth product that the US has banned is all products manufactured by workers of Lope County No. 4 Vocational Skills Education and Training Center in Xinjiang Province. According to the statement, all these products have been made by forceful work of the Chinese government in China's Xinjiang Uyghar Autonomous Region.
China's government is engaged in systematic human rights violations against minorities
The Chinese government has long been engaged in systematic human rights violations against Uighurs, other ethnic and religious minorities in the region. Earlier, the US Department of Customs and Border Protection issued five 'Withhold Release Orders' to maintain this import ban. These orders prohibit the importation of goods produced from bonded labor in the US.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the Trump government has drawn the world's community attention to human rights violations by the Communist Party of China in Xinjiang Province. This action has been taken to support this move.
