Quad members refuse to co-sponsor resolution on Beijing Olympic armistice 

Sunday’s Yomiuri, Mainichi, and Sankei wrote that the UN General Assembly approved on Thursday a China-sponsored resolution on an Olympic armistice for the 2022 Beijing Winter Games. Some 173 nations co-sponsored the resolution, but the United States, Japan, Australia, and India and some other countries did not. The armistice for the Tokyo Olympics was co-sponsored by 186 nations. The paper speculated the nations who refused to sign it did so out of concern for the human rights situation in China.
