Intel apologizes for banning use of components manufactured in ‘Xinjiang’

Intel, a US-based semiconductor manufacturer, has landed at odds with Beijing over human rights.

Intel has apologized to its Chinese suppliers for the ban of using components from ‘Xinjiang’. The ban created fiery discussions among Chinese netizens on Weibo, calling for Beijing to punish Intel.
The controversy started after Intel sent a note to its Chinese suppliers saying they should not use Xinjiang-made components in Intel’s chips.
