Takaichi: "It's too late"; government delegation to Beijing Olympics off the table.

On April 27, Sanae Takaichi, policy chief of the Liberal Democratic Party, criticized the timing of the government's announcement that it would not send a government delegation to the Beijing Winter Olympics and Paralympics. The government should have decided on a 'diplomatic boondoggle' as soon as possible," she said. The government should have promptly decided on a 'diplomatic boycott,'" she said in an Internet program.
