Rep. Stewart’s statement on the EU’s coordinated sanctions on China

Today, the United States, Canada, Britain, and the European Union announced coordinated sanctions on China for its genocidal campaign against Uyghur Muslims. Congressman Chris Stewart (R-UT) released the following statement:

“China needs to be punished for their continued human rights violations against Uyghur Muslims. I am encouraged that it is an international effort to confront the atrocities committed by America’s greatest foreign adversary. 

“We stand at an important moment: Over the past week, China has not just been testing the Biden Administration’s resolve. They are testing America’s resolve. And America is always stronger when we stand alongside our allies. I support President Biden’s coordinated sanctions against China, and I look forward to working with the administration to combat China’s growing influence.”
