Mr. Biden’s approval of the measure, according to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, demonstrates the “United States’ commitment to combating forced labor, including in the context of the ongoing genocide in Xinjiang.”

According to the White House, US President Joe Biden signed legislation on December 23 prohibiting imports from China’s Xinjiang region due to concerns over forced labor, eliciting a furious response from China.

The Uighur Forced Labor Prevention Act is part of the United States’ response to Beijing’s treatment of China’s Muslim Uighur minority, which Washington has declared genocide.
