The Chinese Ministry of Commerce has threatened to blacklist Chinese companies in America.
The US has blacklisted Chinese companies for their alleged role in the abuse of the Uyghur community and other Muslim ethnic minorities. China is furious about this. China said on Sunday that it would take necessary steps to respond to the US blacklisting of Chinese companies. At the same time, Beijing also rejected the mistreatment of the Uighur community.
The Chinese Ministry of Commerce said that this step of the US is an unfair repression of Chinese enterprises and a serious violation of international economic and trade rules. The ministry said in a statement that China will take necessary steps to protect the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies. China has denied allegations of arbitrary detention and forced labor by the Uighur community in its far western region of Xinjiang. At the same time, it has started imposing restrictions on visas and financial relations in response to sanctions imposed against its companies and officials.
Prohibition on the sale of equipment or other goods of Chinese companies
Significantly, the US Commerce Department said in a statement on Friday that electronic and technology companies and other business entities have committed “Chinese government repression, mass detention and high-tech attacks” against Muslim minorities in Xinjiang. Helped to enable ‘Surveillance Campaign’. Under these restrictions, Americans cannot sell equipment or other goods to these Chinese companies. The US has increased financial and trade penalties over its crackdown on democracy in Hong Kong as well as China’s treatment of Uighurs and other Muslim minorities.
More than one million Uighurs locked up in camps
It has been reported in several media reports that since 2017 the Chinese government has held more than one million Uighurs in Xinjiang. Critics say that China forces these people to work in the camps here. Apart from this, people are tortured and made infertile in these camps. However, China has always denied these allegations. But even after this claim of China, the world does not believe its words.
