All broadcasters gave top coverage to reports related to the Beijing Winter Olympics, focusing on preparations for the opening ceremony to be held this evening. The networks said Chinese leader Xi will meet with the government representatives of 25 nations participating in the opening ceremony as part of his “Olympic diplomacy.” The broadcasters also said Xi will hold bilateral talks with Russian President Putin, who is expected to arrive in Beijing this afternoon, speculating that the two leaders will discuss Ukraine and other issues. NHK and TBS reported on a rally held in New York on Thursday in which the participants called for a boycott of the Beijing Olympics by accusing China of human rights violations.
