The UK and Canada have the diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, citing concerns over China’s human rights record.
The US, UK and Australia will “pay the price for their mistaken acts” after deciding not to send government delegations to the Winter Olympics, China’s foreign ministry has said.
“The United States, Britain and Australia have used the Olympics platform for political manipulation”
said Wang Wenbin, a spokesperson at the Chinese foreign ministry. Reuters reports.
China is not worried about a “domino effect” of diplomatic boycotts of the Winter Olympics.
“Most countries in the world have expressed support for the Beijing
Winter Olympics,” foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin told a daily
news conference today. Reuters reports.
