China has said it will “fully attack” the US over the ban on Uighur abuse.

Beijing has criticized the new US law that sanctioned Chinese authorities over the mass repression of Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities, saying the "Chinese policy in the Xinjiang region" was maliciously attacked.

US President Donald Trump signed the Uyghur Human Rights Act on Wednesday, saying that China "has completely fallen behind and the US will bear the burden of all subsequent developments."

The announcement came after Chinese foreign diplomat Yang Jiechi met with Foreign Secretary Mike Pompeo in Hawaii on Wednesday, during which Yang expressed "deep dissatisfaction" with the new law. He discusses the urgency of transparency in dealing with the spread of coronavirus and is "absolutely mutual" as the US is placed in the context of trade, security, and diplomacy.

The law, which has been unanimously passed by Congress, requires the US administration to blame Chinese authorities for the "arbitrary detention, atrocities and repression" of the Uyghurs and other minorities.

The United States frees any assets held by US authorities and prohibits entry into the country.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the move would "interfere with China's internal affairs" and urged the US to "correct its mistakes immediately."

"This move will deliberately worsen the human rights situation in Xinjiang and undermine Chinese policy," the ministry said.

Activists say that China has surrounded at least one million Uyghurs and other Ottoman Muslims and is trying to force them to obliterate their culture by punishing basic Islamic practices.

Beijing describes running a vocational education center as an alternative to Islamic terrorism.

Trump signed the deal shortly after the explosive new book, written by his former national security adviser, John Bolton, was approved by a massive concentration camp, the president told his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.
