borrows reelection. as an international outcry, after mere mas ousted civilian leda is sentenced him will be you at his cooling, a sham trial ah, sizing what it calls, human rights atrocities and genocide, the united states has announced a diplomatic boycott of china's winter olympics. it means that no american government official will attend, but they won't be at impact on athletes who are planning to head to the games. cantaloupe has hot, i am reports political tensions between the us and china, now playing out and next year's winter olympics and beijing, you as president joe biden said for weeks he was considering a diplomatic boycott of the games over china's human rights record, particularly what washington says, as genocide against weaker muslims and shing young province,
5:02 am
the biden administration will not send any diplomatic or official representation to the beijing 2022 winter olympics and paralympic games given the pierre scenes ongoing genocide and crimes against a humanity engine. john and other human rights abuses, the athletes and team usa have our full support will be behind them 100 percent as we cheered them on from home. la rey, china is accused of detaining more than a 1000000 weaker muslims and other minorities in camps where force, labor, and serialization of women are allegedly common. beijing denies this before the boycott was announced, it warn't of countermeasures, but also talk down and he likely impact from the us move scenarios who sure, you know. yeah. most politicians who clump a boycott for political self interested or just showing off and i pick things up with nobody cares whether they come or not. and it will have no influence on
5:03 am
beijing success in hosting the winter olympics. the boycott is moving forward despite recent effort to stabilize ties, including last month's a video meeting between biden and chinese presidents teaching pink. i think what we're seeing now is both united states and china testing the waters and going back and forth on politics and the olympics become a platform or a proxy for engaging in political verbal batteries. let's just hope it stays at verbal. we're entering a perilous moment and the olympics are sort of ante up the tension between the 2 countries in ways that are much bigger than the olympics. the u. s. also applauded the woman's tennis association for suspending all tournaments and china over concerns for the safety of chinese ton of star peng. why? with the olympics coming to the u. s. in 2028. there are now questions about how china may respond both in the short and long term. katia lopez of the young al jazeera. joining us out from beijing is on a tang and
5:04 am
a political analyst who specializes in chinese affairs. good to be with this. again, mr. tegan, a pretentious act, political manipulation, a grave distortion of the spirit of the olympic charter. that's how china has described the u. s. diplomatic boycott. what do we make of that reaction as it touched a rule enough? no, i mean this was expected. the u. s. has been telegraphing this move, it's won't be surprising your foster and also great britain follow and suit. these are quote principal actions that these groups are taking. meanwhile, in afghanistan, a broken battered abandon, country faces starvation. so i guess principles are something that are very, very selective allegations against china, over sion. john, i've never been shown, they're all instigated in most instances leading back to adrian's ends and the jamestown foundation, which is funded by the ca. so at this juncture,
5:05 am
this is the war of words. it's accomplish nothing except breeding bad blood between these 2 nations who actually need to come together in order to address the world's real problems. china has a fan demick and the economics china has previously said that it would take resolute countermeasures in the event of a boy called what could those entail? well, there's a whole number of things i think it'll actually be quite muted. there will be some sort of reaction, i don't know exactly what to do is maybe extending to officials or something like that or, or cutting out some sort of representation by the u. s. remember, the u. s. is not invited to china to the democracy summit that they're holding or russia. and at this time, both china and russia are in, in the same boat in terms of us pressing them, seemingly on all fronts. so at this juncture,
5:06 am
china is just trying to figure out exactly what all of this stuff means. is it just political posturing ahead of the mid terms next year by president who was unpopular? or does this reflect the long term, a systematic and structural differences between the countries? so what do you think it means for ongoing us, china relations? i think that the base of the problem is that china's success has brought it to the forefront us is not used to having any rival whatsoever. and they're acting particularly as a hedge who is going to be king of the hill. they do not want anybody challenging us dominance and militarily, politically and economically. ironically, if you look at the u. s. politics and the u. s. itself, it's, it's ribbon by all sorts of factions, lyrical stalemate, violence on the street. i don't know that this is
5:07 am
a country that can stand up and say, look, you should follow us. look at our how well we're doing. it's time for us to lead by example, instead of by preaching china has had a 40 year track record of improving the lives of its people. and i think this is, in essence, the problem. how do you confront system that you say should not work with yet? is working, whereas the system you say is the best system is not working for your people. and attacking and begging, but he thinks indeed thank if you open government forces of one more battlefield victories against rebels from the north. the dry and people liberation frontal t p l f. appears to be retracing in a mata and a fall regions which neighbor to grey. and that's where the rebels are based. soldiers loyal to prime minister, i'll be, i'll magic, have now taken back to towns of jesse and come bolger. the strategically important because they sit on a national highway will
