After the United States, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on Wednesday, December 8, that Beijing would not send any of his government representatives to the 2022 Olympic Winter Games.

This decision has been made in the context of “Difference of opinion” With China on a number of issues ranging from Australian foreign intervention laws to the recent decision to acquire nuclear-powered submarines.

“Australia will not back down from the strong position it has taken to defend its interests, and it is not surprising that we do not send Australian officials to these games.”
