WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The department Commerce said on Friday it had added 33 Chinese companies and institutions to its blacklist, accusing them of contributing to human rights abuses.

This decision also responds to concerns related to national security, which include weapons of mass destruction and other military activities, said the Commerce Department.

This blacklisting is the latest measure taken by the government of Donald Trump against entities linked to the Chinese military sector and it aims to punish Beijing for the repression of minorities, in Xinjiang in particular.

She intervenes whereas Beijing announced Friday a project aiming at imposing a law of national security on the semi-autonomous territory of Hong Kong, causing the reprobation of Washington.

Among the targeted companies is NetPosa, a company specializing in artificial intelligence and whose facial recognition technologist was used to monitor the Uighurs, a Turkish-speaking Muslim population living in Xinjiang.
