China has no plans to invite US politicians to the Winter Olympics in Beijing, the Chinese Communist Party newspaper, the People’s Daily’s affiliate, Global Times, reported on the 29th. US President Joe Biden has revealed that he is considering a diplomatic boycott of the Winter Olympics.

US President Joe Biden “under consideration” diplomatic boycott of Beijing Olympics

The Global Times anonymously quoted a person familiar with the preparations for the Winter Olympics, saying that he had forgotten the invitation of a large number of people as a countermeasure against the new coronavirus.

He also suggested that there was a political influence behind the decision not to invite US officials. China believes that the success of the Winter Olympics has nothing to do with the attendance of some anti-Chinese politicians in Western countries, the Global Times reported.

“Without the attendance of some politicians who are confusing, the Beijing Winter Olympics will be even better,” the Global Times reported.

China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a regular press conference in Beijing on the 29th that the Winter Olympics were “a gathering of winter sports enthusiasts and athletes from around the world, a place for political poses and operations. “No,” he said. “Several countries, including the United States, have taken up the Beijing Winter Olympics and linked the attendance of officials with the so-called human rights issue.” “The essence is a systematic slander in the name of human rights protection,” he criticized.
