The following is the current global boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics next year.
The White House confirmed on December 6 that it would not send a US delegation to Beijing to participate in the 2022 Winter Olympics.
“In view of the (Beijing authorities) continuing genocide and crimes against humanity and other violations of human rights in Xinjiang, the Biden government will not send any diplomatic or official representatives to the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.” White House Press Secretary Jane. Jen Psaki announced.
The last time the United States boycotted the Olympics was in Moscow in 1980. The reason for the boycott was the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. At that time, the United States joined the anti-Soviet coalition composed of 65 countries including Canada, Israel, Japan, China and West Germany.
According to “Politics”, British Prime Minister Boris. Boris Johnson told the British Parliament on December 8: “The Beijing Winter Olympics will be met with a (British) diplomatic boycott.”
“No ministers and no officials are expected to attend.”
Johnson ruled out the ban on athletes, that is, not banning British athletes from participating. He called the boycott “unwise”.
According to another report in Politics, Canada also stated on Wednesday (December 8) that it would boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics together with the United States.
Trudeau told reporters in Ottawa, the Canadian capital, “We are extremely concerned about the Chinese government (the Chinese Communist government)’s repeated violations of human rights.” “I think Canada and many other countries have chosen not to send diplomatic representatives to the Beijing Olympics and Paralympics. It will not surprise China (the CCP).”
“For many years, we have been very aware of our deep concern about human rights violations.”
If Canadian athletes wish, they will still be allowed to participate in the Beijing Winter Olympics.
Australian Prime Minister Scott. Scott Morrison said that Australian officials would not participate in the Beijing Winter Olympics with Australian athletes due to the Chinese government’s “human rights violations” in Xinjiang.
Australia’s decision may also be partly driven by the economic tensions between the two countries. In June 2021, the Beijing authorities adopted tariffs, bans and other measures to restrict imports from Australia.
For Australian athletes, if they wish, they will still be allowed to participate in the competition.
New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister Grant. Grant Robertson said on December 7 that New Zealand would not send diplomats to China.
Robertson said: “(This decision was made) there are a series of factors, but they are mainly related to the COVID-19 virus, and the entanglement of COVID-19 travel logistics is not conducive to this kind of travel.”
He added that New Zealand’s decision had been communicated to the Beijing authorities as early as October.
If they wish, New Zealand athletes will still be allowed to participate in the competition.
This small European country confirmed its decision to diplomatically boycott the Chinese Communist government before the United States expressed its position through a letter submitted by the Lithuanian Parliament.
After Lithuania opened a Taiwan representative office in its territory, its relations with the Chinese Communist authorities became tense.
For Lithuanian athletes, if they wish, they will still be allowed to participate in the competition.
Although Japan has not explicitly stated that it will boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida stated on December 16 that he “has no plans” to go to Beijing. This makes the CCP feel dissatisfied with Kishida, but it cannot be too tough.
According to the “Washington Times” report, Kishida made the above statement when he was questioned by opposition members of Congress.
“In the case of considering national interests, it is important to make judgments at the appropriate time after comprehensively considering various issues.” Kishida told the lawmakers.
Although this is the case, Japan’s “Yomiuri Shimbun” exclusively reported on December 11, 2021 that Japan will join the diplomatic boycott and will not send high-level officials to attend.
The response of the Chinese Communist Party
Although other countries seem to be hesitant to boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics, the Chinese Communist regime has begun to threaten boycotting countries, warning that the United States may face unspecified “resolute countermeasures.”
According to a Reuters report, the Chinese Communist Party also requires multinational companies to sever ties with Lithuania, otherwise they will be shut out of the Chinese market.
According to the report, if international companies are forced to choose between the US and Chinese markets, this could have a major impact on the global economy.
However, some analysts also indicated that if the CCP cuts off its economic ties with Western powers led by the United States and other countries, the economic blows it will suffer will be unbearable.
