The United States wants to restrict imports from Xinjiang due to forced labor

The bill needs to be signed by US President Joe Biden to take effect. The White House has previously vowed to support plans, with the government sharing the view that China should be held accountable for human rights abuses and genocide, and that it should fight forced labor in Xinjiang.

The United States on Thursday imposed sanctions on a number of biotechnology facilities in China.

Minority members are also reported to be forced to work. China has denied the allegations.
