Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Li Jiming said Washington is lying about Xinjian "forced labour" which may affect Bangladesh RMG sector.

In a video post, titled "#AMinuteWithAmbassador" on the Chinese Embassy verified Facebook page last night, he urged Bangladesh to be aware of the lies.

“It has come to my attention that a certain RMG industry association in Bangladesh recently alerted its members to the risks associated with cotton from China, due to USA's allegation of 'forced labour in Xinjiang'. I also noticed that the alert was issued following a meeting between the association and two representatives from 'Indo-Pacific Opportunity Project' affiliated to some US Agency.

The so-called 'forced labour in Xinjiang' is entirely a lie. But why do they lie? It is now circulated on the internet that two US diplomats previously posted in Guangzhou reportedly confessed in 2021, and I quote, 'Nothing is wrong about Xinjiang, but to attack their human right policies is an effective means to make Xinjiang break away from international industrial chain, and to make Uyghurs unhappy, turbulent and then fight against the Chinese government.”
