The US has given another blow to China amidst the ongoing tension. The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has issued five release orders on products imported from China. The order will apply to products made forcibly in the Uyghur region of China's Xinjiang province. That is, these products will not be able to come to America at present.
The United States says that the Chinese government is continuously violating human rights in the region. The Uighur people and other minorities are constantly being harassed here. That is why this decision has been taken regarding the products prepared here.

Explain that there is constant tension and conflict between the US and China on trade, corona virus, human rights and other issues. The United States has also imposed various restrictions on China in the past. These include the recent decision to ban Chinese students' visas. Continued arrest of Chinese spies in the US also remains a major issue.
