WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House on Friday criticized China for benefiting from human rights abuses and said it was closely monitoring the issue of forced labor.
“We believe the international community should speak out against China’s weapon against the reliance of private companies on their markets to suppress free speech and prevent ethical business practices,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters when she said was asked about reports that China was pressuring companies to refrain from using forced labor products.
“It’s something we’re watching closely,” she said. “I would expect (the ministries of) government and commerce to have more to say about this later today.”
