South Korea is not considering participating in the diplomatic boycott of the Winter Olympics in China

The South Korean government is not considering participating in the diplomatic boycott of the Winter Olympics in China initiated by the US government.

After a meeting with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison in Canberra, South Korean President Moon Jae In indicated that his government was not considering this measure and that no one had pressured him to do so.

This is the first time Moon has addressed the matter after the US authorities announced last week that they would not send an official delegation to the Winter Olympics to protest human rights abuses in China. The South Korean news agency Yonhap.

“The South Korean government is not considering it. As for the diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics, neither the United States nor any other nation asked us to join,” he said.

The German authorities commented on this on the same Sunday when Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock criticized the use of such events for institutional boycotts.

At the moment, countries like Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK have already announced that they will join the US in the diplomatic boycott of the sporting event, although their athletes will compete in the various disciplines as planned.
