(Seoul = Yonhap News) = US President Joe Biden hinted at the possibility of a ‘diplomatic boycott’ of the Beijing Winter Olympics.
During a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the White House on the 18th (local time), President Biden responded to a question about whether he was considering a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics.
A diplomatic boycott of the Olympics means that the athletes are sent to the Olympics, but not the delegation made up of government or political figures.
A White House spokeswoman said the background was due to concerns about human rights practices in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
The remarks came three days after President Biden held his first summit meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping since taking office.
If the U.S. decides to boycott diplomatically, it will inevitably disrupt the U.S.-China relationship as well as the South Korean government’s plan to use the Beijing Olympics as a momentum for improving inter-Korean and U.S. relations, such as the declaration of an end to the war.
