Canada also announced a diplomatic boycott of the Winter Games – other sports

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced, on Wednesday, his diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics, after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Ministers and other government representatives will not attend the sporting event in February, but British and Canadian athletes will continue to head to the Chinese capital.

The United Kingdom and Canada are following the example of the United States. Australia also announced that it would not send representatives to the Olympics. For countries, the mistreatment of Uyghurs in Xinjiang Province is an important reason for the boycott.

German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier said he had no plans yet to go to the Games in February, but he had no plans to boycott the United States either.
