Amazon has withdrawn its application for this string follow GAC advice.
Amazon's application was issued a GAC Early Warning by China. The warning system is noted as a strong recommendation on behalf of national governments to the ICANN Board that a given TLD application should be denied as it stands. Applicants are encouraged to work with objecting GAC members.
The warning states that the string relates to a geographical area in China and that Amazon's application does not have any government support.
Although the United States government initially opposed the GAC objection to geographic-looking strings such as .yun, they put out a statement in July 2013 that revised their position, saying it would remain neutral in the case of .yun, thereby allowing the GAC to present a consensus objection regarding the string and all of its IDN versions.
