Xinjiang’s cotton production accounts for one-fifth of the global cotton supply. The picture shows Uyghurs picking cotton.

The U.S. Senate unanimously passed a bill on Wednesday (14th) to ban the import of all goods from China’s Xinjiang region in response to allegations of abuse against the Muslim Uighur minority in Xinjiang.

Unless otherwise proven, the legislation presupposes that all goods manufactured in Xinjiang are produced through forced labor. However, the bill called “Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Law” needs to be passed by the House of Representatives and signed by the President before it can become law.

At present, the United States has banned the import of Xinjiang cotton and tomatoes (tomatoes).

The Chinese government has been widely accused of violating the human rights of Uighurs and other Muslim minorities in Xinjiang.
