It remains unclear whether the U.S. will boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, either alone or in a coalition with other countries. Last month the U.S. Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, outlined the reasons, saying: “China uses coercion and aggression to systematically erode autonomy in Hong Kong, undercut democracy in Taiwan, abuse human rights in Xinjiang and Tibet, and assert maritime claims in the South China Sea that violate international law.” He delivered these remarks shortly before March 18, when he and the National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, met in the Alaskan city of Anchorage with China’s top diplomat, Yang Jiechi, and foreign minister, Wang Yi. There, the Chinese dressed down the Americans, on camera, for impugning China’s domestic policy while not having their own house in order. The State Department’s spokesman, Ned Price, tweeted on April 6: “As I said, we don’t have any announcement regarding the Beijing Olympics. 2022 remains a ways off, but we will continue to consult closely with allies and partners to define our common concerns and establish our shared approach to the PRC.”
