According to the list provided by the Olympics host, only 25 of the world’s more than 200 countries and regions have dignitaries or royalty attending the Beijing Winter Olympics. Hong Kong media said that leaders from six countries who were expected to attend, had no athletes participating in the competition.
According to Hong Kong 01 on February 2, a closer analysis of the list found that six countries – Cambodia, Singapore, Egypt, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and Papua New Guinea – were not among the 91 participating countries. All six countries sent their senior leaders to the Winter Olympics despite this. According to the publication, this “diplomatic move unrelated to the Winter Olympics” is “notable.”
In front of the Chinese Consulate in Los Angeles on November 3, 2021, in California, Human rights activists called for a boycott to prevent the Chinese government from using the Olympics to legitimize human rights violations.
Because China is suppressing human rights, the Beijing Winter Olympics have been subjected to a worldwide diplomatic boycott. China, according to critics, is “working very hard” to find someone to back up its public image.
