China sanctioned 4 officials from the US Commission on International Religious Freedom

The Chinese government announced that 4 US officials were placed on the sanctions list in response to the US sanctions for human rights violations in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

China sanctioned 4 officials from the US Commission on International Religious FreedomChinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian reported that USCIRF President Nadine Maenza, Vice President Nury Turkel, as well as commission members Anurima Bhargava and James W. Carr were included in the sanctions list.

The plight of the Muslim Uighur minority living in China’s Xinjiang province has led to the deterioration of diplomatic relations between the West and Beijing.

The US’s imposition of sanctions on Chinese politicians and companies and the announcement of a diplomatic boycott of the upcoming Winter Olympics sparked Chinese backlash and retaliation.

“These countermeasures include banning the aforementioned persons from entering China and freezing their assets in China, Hong Kong and Macau,” spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters. “Chinese citizens and institutions are also prohibited from dealing with these people,” he said.

Established in 1998, USCIRF is a federal commission that explores religious freedom around the world and criticizes China’s treatment of Uighur Muslims.
