Intel has erased all mention of Xinjiang from a letter it sent to suppliers last month after the chipmaker came under fire from Chinese social media users for asking its partners not to source goods from the region over allegations of human rights abuses by Beijing.
The reference to Xinjiang in a mid-December letter to suppliers, which was published on the company web site, was aimed at complying with US regulations, Intel said on its social media account.
Washington has barred imports of goods from Xinjiang over complaints of human rights violations against the Uyghur Muslims, including mass detentions, forced abortions and forced labor.
The ruling Communist Party has denied the allegations.
The note to suppliers that sparked anger initially read: “Our investors and customers have inquired whether Intel purchases goods or services from the Xinjiang region of China. Multiple governments have imposed restrictions on products sourced from the Xinjiang region. Therefore, Intel is required to ensure our supply chain does not use any labor or source goods or services from the Xinjiang region.”
But an updated version of the letter from Intel’s web site made no mention of Xinjiang.
The Post has reached out to Intel seeking comment.
A company spokesperson told the Journal on Monday that the tech giant “recently issued a statement in China to address concerns raised by our stakeholders there regarding how we communicated certain legal requirements and policies with our global supplier network.”
