The house of representatives of the United States Congress voted for a draft law allowing to impose sanctions against China for Beijing’s policy in Xinjiang-Uighur Autonomous region.

For the first time one Congressman were allowed to vote on behalf of several of his fellow party members. So voted 71 Democrat, reports TASS.

The initiator of the bill was Senator Marco Rubio. The law will allow to impose sanctions against Chinese officials who, according to Washington, oppress Uighurs and other Muslim groups. Chinese officials can deny visas and freeze their funds in the United States.

The document has already received the support of the U.S. Senate. Now he was sent for signature to President Donald Trump.

In may, the United States has blacklisted nine Chinese organizations, which, according to the American side, involved in violations of the PRA in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous region.

Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of state Michael Pompeo and British foreign Secretary Dominic Raab in a telephone conversation stated that China “must comply with the obligations” of the special administrative region of Hong Kong (Hong Kong) in the framework of the joint Sino-British joint Declaration. As the head reported a press-service of the state Department of Morgan Ortagus, Washington and London “agree that the international community should support Hong Kong to respond to the destruction of the Beijing autonomy of Hong Kong.”

We will remind, Pompeo told the U.S. Congress that Hong Kong no longer retains a significant degree of autonomy in relation to China.
