China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed opposition to the initiative proposed by Democrat Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the US House of Representatives, and her accusations of alleged genocide against ethnic groups in Xinjiang (northwest), with a strong presence of Muslims.

Apart from Pelosi, in recent months, several governments and human rights groups have been promoting the idea of boycotting the sport event, due to alleged mistreatment in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

This issue keeps China’s relations with Western nations under tension, it led to the mutual imposition of sanctions and even problems on the commercial field.

China is almost ready to host the Beijing Winter Olympics and Paralympics in February 2022, and will become the only city in the world to host the two variants of Olympic competitions.
