Beijing Olympics, government delegation sent off

Beijing Olympics, government delegation not to attend, PM "Japan will make its own decision".

On April 24, the Japanese government announced that it would not send a government delegation, including cabinet ministers, to the Beijing Winter Olympics and Paralympics starting in February 2022. This is in line with the "diplomatic boycott" by the U.S. and other allies. At the same time, it waited for the right time to emphasize that it was Japan's own decision, rather than putting forward a protest against China's human rights problems, as the U.S. has done.
