7:01 am
a back on the streets since you don fearful, the military will stay in power long off to the agreed n date. and the by the ministration revise, the policy that will keep migrants in mexico. well, this island cases are reviewed. ah, it, citing what it called a human rights atrocities. in genocide the united states is announced a diplomatic boycott of china's winter olympics. it means no american government officials will attend. there won't be an impact on athletes heading to the games shortly. we'll be live in beijing. off of this report from katya lepus audio political tensions between the us and china, now playing out and next year's winter olympics. and beijing, he was presidential bite and said for weeks he was considering a diplomatic boycott of the games over china's human rights record. particularly
7:02 am
what washington says is genocide against weaker muslims in shing young province. 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. oh, china is accused of detaining more than a 1000000 weaker muslims and other minorities in camps where force, labor and civilization of women are allegedly common. beijing denies this before the boycott was announced, it warn't of counter measures, but also talked 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 hiking things up with nobody cares whether they come or not
7:03 am
. and it will have no influence on 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 president seeking 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. katya low priscilla young al
7:04 am
jazeera while it's close to beijing, now we can speak to chris one that katrina you and katrina will be hearing from the foreign ministry gayden coming us. what do we expect? how that's right. they're expected to give a briefing sometime this afternoon, paging time, and really were expecting similar comments. they have been repeating the same kind of sentiments over the past few weeks when these 1st rumors came out that the u. s . was mulling over this move. china has acute washington, a political grandstanding, political, political, manipulation of distorting the spirit of the games. and we've had chinese states media similarly expressed the same sentiment, saying that this is the us trying to contain china and reflect a cold war mentality. so this will no doubt escalate tensions just weeks after president jor biden present. she didn't think sat down to a video colon at the time the business community world to mystic that the
7:05 am
relationship was at least stabilizing. and now this is against spiked concerns about what this might mean for the 2 countries trade between the 2 countries exchanges between the 2 countries. aging is currently mulling over what exactly it's going to do to respond. but we're yet to hear any details about what those counter measures might look like. china are under the spotlight of course, and various issues, not least over the tennis player, punish way. and we get situation as we talked about earlier, lympics may be seen to be an opportunity to change perceptions for the country. that's exactly right. i mean the olympics are supposed to be this really big positive event. it's supposed to represent a sense of unity and for china, they were really hoping that this event could really represent its own new standing on the global stage is our new role as is leader in the east. so the fact that the u. s. is not attending and potentially other western countries could follow suit.
7:06 am
other officials may not attend from a countries which are allied with the u. s. that could really damage china's credibility and damage it's image and it's already reeling. as you mentioned from the whole handling of the punctual i case last week, the devotee announced it was suspending all tournaments in china because they're concerned about her safety and well being. they're concerned that the allegations that she made against a top official at the beginning of november, are not being properly investigated punctually here has not been seen out in about in public or speaking freely for weeks. and any mention of her here in china is completely silence completely wiped from the internet. it's not mentioned on state media, it's well, so it's highly controversial. beijing for it's part, has said that, you know, this is all hype from western governments. that punctual is absolutely fine. she's resting at home, she's requested privacy, and it's really been the kind of similar response that they've had. 2 concerns
