WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. A US Customs official said on Wednesday that the US
is ready to apply a ban on imports from China's Xinjiang province when a law requiring it becomes enforceable later in June,
adding that an exception would require a "very high" level of evidence.
In December, US President Joe Biden signed the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA)
into law in an effort to protect the US market from items tainted by human rights violations in Xinjiang,
where the US government claims China is conducting genocide against Uyghur Muslims.
