Pakistan Continues Cotton Trade With China’s Xinjiang Region


Pakistan is still continuing cotton trade with China, especially from the controversial Xinjiang region of the country. According to China Economic Net (CEN), they took a crystal-clear stance that Xinjiang cotton industry is not stigmatised by human rights abuses and forced labour and rather the move is politically-motivated, reports Pakistan Observer.

Pakistan Textile Exporters Association (PTEA) Chairman Muhammad Ahmed in an interview to CEN as quoted by Pakistan Observer said that Pakistan traders characterise Xinjiang cotton boycott reprehensible.

“We have nothing to do with western campaign hell-bent to play Xinjiang cotton card to eclipse China’s image under the pretext of concocted accusation of human rights,” he asserted.
