U.S. President Barack Obama signed a series of laws approved earlier by Congress, and on international trade.
In particular, Obama approved a law that criminalizes conduct campaigns calling for the boycott of Israel.
The act prohibits cooperation with structures involved in the BDS movement (boycott, divestment, sanctions) and requires a report on such structures.
It should be noted that the law applies to businesses located on «Israeli-controlled territories», but Obama made it clear that this part of the act will be waived.
Another President signed the law prohibits the importation into the U.S. of goods, which are the fruit of slave labour. The new law closes a loophole that existed in law from 1930, which allowed such imports if demand for products exceeds the manufacturing capabilities of American industry.
Also signed was a bill redistributable provided by the laws of the United States protection of the right to privacy on the citizens of the member States and allowing foreigners to sue the US government in the case of unlawful disclosure belonging to their personal information.
