US imposes sanctions on Chinese company over human rights abuse in Xinjiang

@SecPompeo
US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has said that sanctions have been imposed on Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps of China and two of its officials for their connection to serious human rights abuse on the Uyghur community in Xinjiang. After the sanctions imposed by the US Department of Treasury, Mr Pompeo urged countries worldwide to condemn the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for their continuous human rights abuse against its own citizens.

The US Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctioned one Chinese government entity and two current or former government officials in connection with serious rights abuses against ethnic minorities in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

The entity and officials are being designated for their connection to serious human rights abuse against ethnic minorities in Xinjiang. These include mass arbitrary detention and severe physical abuse, among other serious abuses targeting Uyghurs, a Turkic Muslim population indigenous to Xinjiang, and other ethnic minorities in the region.
