China threatens with countermeasures to US for boycott of Beijing Olympics: Taiwan stands in solidarity with US

Foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said a boycott of the Olympics by the United States of America could force China to use countermeasures. Moreover, the Chinese authorities say the US will “pay the price,” but the spokesman did not elaborate on what he meant.

“The United States will pay a price for its mistaken acts,” he said, without giving details. “Let’s all wait and see.”

Biden's decision not to send diplomats to China on the pretext of violating human rights against the Uyghurs comes a few weeks after the two leaders met online to discuss steps to ease tensions between the two states.

The US will not send representatives to China due to “ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang and other human rights abuses,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.

The United States will host the Olympic Games in 2028 and also intends to host them in 2030.

Premier Su Tseng-chang said that the government will always vie for any opportunities for Taiwan’s athletes to compete but the government must also pay close attention to and respond properly to any changes in the international situation.
