The problem can be on the power steering pump itself. If the power steering pump is faulty, the power steering fluid does not circulate properly. One good reason why it squeaks when wheel is turned. Check the power steering belt too if they are not sloppy. If it is, adjust the pump to tighten the belt.
But before doing the power steering pump replacement, please do check the power steering fluid level. You may need to fill it up a little and turn the wheel from left to right. By turning the wheel to the max left and max right, the steering fluid will circulate and may get rid of the problem.
If the problem still persists after putting on new fluids, go for the power steering pump replacement. Be sure to tighten the power steering belt after replacement.

Suggest it may be power steering fluid, has made it's way on the power steering belt, causing belt slippage, and perhaps glazing the power steering belt. Even if a new one was put on. If so, the belt may need to be changed, also the pulleys need to be cleaned. Make sure those pulleys aren't glazed, by the belt slipping over them.
It could also be that the belt isn't tight enough, and/or worn out. Make sure the hoses, going from the power steering pump to the steering box, are not leaking, at the back of the pump housing.
