North Korea refused to participate in the Beijing Olympics

North Korea will not participate in the Beijing Olympics due to “hostile forces” and the COVID-19 pandemic, according to CTAC.

“We will not be able to take part in the Olympics due to the actions of hostile forces and the global pandemic,” the North Korean state agency said in a statement.

It is noted that Pyongyang will fully support the PRC in the work on the Olympics.

It also emphasizes that the DPRK authorities “reject the actions of Washington and its vassal forces aimed at disrupting the successful opening of the Games.”

The Olympic Games in Beijing will be held from 4 to 20 February. The United States declared a diplomatic boycott of the Winter Olympics, with Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom joining them.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the decision of a number of countries on a diplomatic boycott of the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in Beijing was erroneous and unacceptable.

In January, the Chinese authorities expressed confidence in the successful holding of the Winter Olympics in Beijing amid the spread of the omicron strain of the coronavirus.
