EU Agrees to Impose Sanctions on Chinese Officials

The European Union has agreed to blacklist Chinese officials for human rights violations, Reuters reported, citing two diplomats, DW reports.

These are the first EU sanctions against Beijing since the 1989 arms embargo.

Restrictive measures have been taken against serious violations of human rights, said one EU diplomat.

Chinese officials have been accused of human rights violations against the Uyghur Muslim minority in China, he said.

The EU last imposed sanctions on China, its second largest trading partner, in June 1989, and the arms embargo continues to this day.
