  • China Hints US Blacklist Imminent in Threat to Trade Talks

A response from China on the Xinjiang issue that hits US companies would add another obstacle as the world's two biggest economies struggle to finalize a phase-one deal to de-escalate their trade war.

China was also reportedly planning to publish a list of "unreliable entities" which might lead to sanctions against USA companies as the December 15 deadline for a new round of US tariffs against Chinese products approaches, according to Bloomberg.

The editor-in-chief of the Chinese and English editions of the Global Times, Hu Xijin, said Tuesday, citing sources, that Beijing could impose "visa restrictions on USA officials and lawmakers who've had odious performance on Xinjiang issue". A re-escalation of trade tensions also places more focus on a December 15 deadline for Trump to add yet more tariffs on Chinese imports.

The House vote comes as China is striking back against President Donald Trump's signing of the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. China stands accused of incarcerating as many as a million Uighurs as part of an anti-terrorism campaign, actions it describes as voluntary re-education.

The Senate unanimously approved its own version last September, but the House also includes requirements of the president to sanction responsible Chinese government officials and restricts the exports of data-gathering devices, the Bloomberg news agency reported.

The Communist Party-backed Global Times said in a tweet early Tuesday that the list was being sped up in response to a bill sponsored by Republican Senator Marco Rubio requiring measures against Chinese officials involved in alleged abuses of Uighur Muslims in the far west region of Xinjiang.
