Sanctions on Chinese officials imposed by the US, Canada, EU

Sanctions imposed on Chinese officials in a Trans-Atlantic operation, by the US, Canada, Britain, and the European Union as according to them they are responsible for the human rights abuses against the Uighur people. China retaliated with counter-sanctions.

As said by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken as he is traveled to Brussels on Monday, “we have taken this action today in solidarity with our partners in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the European Union.

As the US has imposed sanctions on China for the treatment of the Uighurs, most Uighurs are Muslims.

However, The US’s treaty allies in the Indo-Pacific Japan, South Korea, and Australia who are geographically closest to China did not join in imposing the sanctions.

The US has accused Beijing of “genocide” against the Uighurs – a stand originally taken by former US President Donald Trump’s administration and now also endorsed by President Joe Biden’s administration.

4 Chinese officials and a Chinese company located in the Xinjiang province were the targets of the sanctions.

The Chinese officials and the Chinese company’s assets are frozen under the sanctions. EU companies and citizens are banned from transacting with them. The Chinese officials are also banned from visiting the EU.

Beijing swiftly retaliated with its own sanctions against 10 Europeans and four organizations accusing them of spreading disinformation and interfering in its internal affairs.
