NHK reported this morning that White House Press Secretary Psaki announced on Monday that the United States will not send any government officials to the Beijing Olympics and Paralympics that will begin in February given China’s “ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang and other human rights abuses.” The network said China is likely to react sharply to the announcement. The network added that U.S. athletes will still be sent to the Games.
