The United States Senate approved a law on Thursday that prohibits imports from China's Xinjiang region to curtail forced labor conditions. In this way, the president of the United States, Joe Biden, has been summoned to sign the rule by which manufacturing companies must demonstrate that their products are not manufactured in a context of labor exploitation to pass through US customs. This Tuesday, the House of Representatives already gave the green light to the bill after the Treasury Department announced last week the imposition of a battery of sanctions against a Chinese company and two individuals for their participation in the violation of Human Rights of Uighurs and other ethnic minorities in the region. Thus, this "rebuttable presumption" is established in light of the Chinese government's decision to develop a network of detention camps for Uyghurs and other Muslim groups, as detailed by the US network CNN. Similarly, the Senate has also given the green light to the appointment of diplomat Nicholas Burns as US ambassador to China almost five months after Biden nominated him.
