    Australia reportedly will not send officials to the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China, in response to the communist nation's genocide against religious minorities.

    "It has already been decided no Australian-based officials or politicians will attend the Beijing Olympics in February next year, and Canberra has refused to sign the Olympic Truce to also send a message to Beijing," The Sydney Morning Herald reported. "But the government is still considering whether Australia's ambassador to China, Graham Fletcher, and other embassy staff will attend events and whether to publicly call it a diplomatic boycott."

    Shortly after this report was published, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison confirmed that Australia would join the U.S. in imposing a diplomatic boycott on the games.

    "[We are] very happy to talk to the Chinese government about these issues and there's been no obstacle to that occurring on our side, but the Chinese government has consistently not accepted those opportunities for us to meet about these issues," Morrison said. "So it is not surprising, therefore, that Australian government officials would not be going to China for those games. Australian athletes will, though. Australia's a great sporting nation and I very much separate the issues of sport and these other political issues. They're issues between two governments."

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced on Monday that the Biden administration would "not send any diplomatic or official representation to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games given the PRC's ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang and other human rights abuses."

    "U.S. diplomatic or official representation would treat these Games as business as usual in the face of the PRC's egregious human rights abuses and atrocities in Xinjiang," she added. "And we simply can't do that."
