President Joe Biden’s administration warned the businesses who have investments and supply chain relations with China’s Xinjiang province that they are likely to face legal consequences due to the rising evidence of genocide and several other human rights cases of abuse in the northwest region of the country.
One of the pointed statements from the Xinjiang Supply Chain Business Advisory mentioned that the individuals and businesses still in the ventures and supply chains and/or connected to China’s Xinjiang contain a high risk of violating US law.
It targets the ethnic Kazakhs, Uyghurs, and ethnic Kyrgyz, who dominantly belong to the Muslim community and the members of other religious minority groups in the country. The abuses consist of state-sponsored forced labor and forced measures for population control and separation of children from their families. Further, it also includes genocides and the crime against humanity. Further, Biden had 14 companies on the economic black list over violating the law in the region.
