WASHINGTON, Sept 18 (Reuters) - U.S. lawmakers will consider two bills next week on goods made with forced labor from China’s Xinjiang region, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Friday, with one that would restrict imports and another that would require disclosures from publicly-traded U.S. companies on their supply chains.
“If we refused to speak out about human rights in China because of commercial interests, then we lose all moral authority to speak about human rights any place in the world,” Pelosi said. (Reporting by Lisa Lambert and Patricia Zengerle; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
