Foreign companies are being told not to mix business with politics if they want to keep operating in China.
The warning has come from a spokesman for Xinjiang's regional government at a news conference, where he was asked about the alleged use of ethnic Uighurs as forced labour to produce cotton.
A growing number of Western retail giants - including H&M and Nike - are already facing a boycott in China for voicing their concerns.
That has sparked a backlash on Chinese social media, with dozens of celebrities dropping deals with the brands.
