US President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed a legislation calling for sanctions against those responsible for repression of Uighur Muslims in China’s Xinjiang province, the White House reported.


The bill, which passed the U.S. Congress nearly unanimously, was intended to send China a strong message on human rights by mandating sanctions against those responsible for oppression of members of China’s Muslim minority, Reuters reported.
