The comment by Donald Trump, the US President regarding the trade deal that is going to happen with China has been postponed till the end of 2020 as fresh doubts are raised regarding the time when the dispute will culminate, while a House Bill of the U.S. in which Muslims are targeted in camps in Xinjiang province which has drawn the ire of Beijing.


In London, Trump spoke to the reporters on Tuesday as a sharp fall has been triggered in the stocks and 9n government bonds there has been a flight said that in every which way he is of the idea to wit for the election to happen before the deal with China. China wanted the deal to happen now and the U.S. is looking forward that whether the deal is going to be right or not.


The House of Representatives of the US has given approval for the bill which requires the administration of Trump so that its response is toughened regarding the crackdown of China on the Muslims from Uighur in Xinjiang, which is a western province of China. as they had to deal with one more setback regarding the trade negotiations.


The Uighur bill was passed in the House controlled by the Democratic and was passed as 407-1, as the U.S. president is required to condemn the abuses strongly that has happened against the Muslims and there has been a call that the camps for mass detention have to be closed in Xinjiang. Trump has called for imposing sanctions on china’s politburo members who are really powerful and the sanctions of this kind have happened for the first time on Communist Party Secretary of Xinjiang, Chen Quanguo.


Beijing has said that the bill comes as a malicious attack for the Chinese, and it has been demanded by them that the U.S. does not make it a law and also said that the law will defend the interest as required.


A person aware of the stance by the Chinese Government with regards to the trade negotiations has told the Reuters that the trade deal’s phase one could be jeopardized if the house Bill regarding the Uighurs turns into a law.


There have been continuous negotiations between both the countries so that the trade deals so-called phase one should be worked upon , but according to sources who has been familiar with the talks that happened said that Washington and Beijing are continuously wrangling over along with the details which also includes the existing tariffs imposed by the U.S. on Chinese goods which are going to be removed and the quantity of additional agricultural products by the U.S. that will be bought by China.

The fate of the Uighur bill still depends on the Senate which is controlled by the Republican which is going to approve it before it is sent to Trump. It is yet to be said by the White House whether the bill will have a veto or a sign by Trump which has a provision in it that allows the President so that sanctions are waived off if it is determined in the interest of the nation.


Strong reactions came from World Uyghur Congress spokesman Dilxat Raxit who came out with a statement that the House bill corresponds to an important action that opposes the continuous push by China for extreme persecution and the organization is looking forward to the U.S. President Donald Trump so that it is signed into law.


According to analysts, the response by China regarding the passage of the Uighur Bill could be more strong much more than the reaction to the law by the U.S. which supports the protesters from Hong Kong. On Monday, Beijing said that it has banned the aircraft and military ships from the U.S. and imposed restrictions so that it does not visit the island and several sanctions are imposed on a non-government organization which is U.S. based.


On Wednesday, the foreign ministry of China has not specified about the retaliatory measures that are considered. A very influential tabloid, Global Times, which is published by the ruling Communist Party of China as the official newspaper and on Tuesday tweeted that the list of so-called unreliable entities will soon be released by Beijing and sanctions will be imposed against those who are harming the interest of China.


According to the paper, China is accelerating the process regarding the list as the House Bill by the US would harm the interest of the Chinese farms and the US entities which are relevant would be included in the targets.


In October, the government sources of China told Reuters, the publication of the list will be dependent upon the state and the nature of the trade negotiations. It has been said by one of them that the release of the list will be put to hold until the situations of trade is at its most tense with the United States.
