12:02 pm
deplores this and rejects this and has large, solemn representations and will take resolute counter measures. the u. s. should stop politicizing sports and stop disrupting the beijing winter olympics with words . otherwise, it might harm bilateral dialogue and cooperation in a series of important areas and international regional issues. she would all continue has more now on china's reaction from beijing. china's clearly furious. it says that the u. s. will pay, but it hasn't detailed what those counts measures might be. an earlier in his statement. jolly jen, the foreign ministry, spokes person accused the us of political prejudice. ideological bias, political manipulation and having sinister intentions. as we heard, beijing says that the limpid should be yours as a tool for international unity, and that any diplomatic boy runs counter to the spirit of the games. not when addressing the issue of alleged human rights abuses, engine jung,
12:03 pm
foreign ministry spokesperson said that these were simply fabricated. now the us of course disagrees. it says that china's treatment of the muslim league of population, that amounts to genocide, many human rights groups say up to 1000000, we get has been in prison. they say that force labor and sterilization are common. now the aging has repeatedly dismiss this, saying that any actions that they've taken into john, have been all about stamping out extremism. now we have other countries who are currently considering diplomatic boycotts as well, including the u. k and canada. and that's certainly going to be a bad look for aging. they were really hoping for positive optics during the olympic games. so far, we've only had one major world leader confirm that they will attend the games and that has been rushes. vladimir putin on july boy, cough is a professor at pacific university, oregon, and also an author on the lympics. he says the us diplomatic boy called isn't a surprise. the olympics have been political since they were founded in the 18
12:04 pm
ninety's by a plucky french aristocrat named baron peer to cooper time. and they have remained political ever since. after all, in 1936, hitler hosted the olympics in berlin to great political fact for him and his regime . every single olympic has political element to it. and so when somebody tells you that the olympics are not political, typically they tend to be milking the olympic coward. both hands, meaning they make their living off the field again. and in fact, since the united states has making a diplomatic boycott of the beijing olympics just further proof. in fact, you might think that this could be the death knell of that fable that the olympics are not political. they are definitely political through and through. all new zealand also says it won't be attending china's winter olympics about the massive level, but says that decision has to do with covet 19 and travel logistics. but the deputy prime minister also says there concerns about human rights still exists and have
12:05 pm
been raised with beijing. we make very regular statements around our views, all human rights issues with respect to china and the prime minister's right size directly with prison and j, where we are already not attending at diplomatic level is and so it's a hypothetical from now moving on, unconcerned around a new conflict in ukraine all set to dominate talks between the u. s. and russian leaders. later on tuesday, president joe biden as promising what his spokesman called, enduring and meaningful costs. if the build up of russian troops, east of ukraine's border results in an invasion. but i'm a lot of impressions. his father is denied that an invasion of plans claiming nature rather for the need to position his military as a buffer against the airlines. as expansion eastwood. well, the white house press secretary says the talks which will take place virtually, or an opportunity to show us support for ukraine. sovereignty is an opportunity for the president to underscore, of course u. s. concerns with martian military activities on the border with ukraine and
12:06 pm
reform. reaffirm the united states support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the ukraine. it's also an opportunity to discuss a range of topics in the u. s. and russia relationship including strategic stability, cyber and regional issues. i, but you can certainly expect that ah, the are, are concerns about the military activities on the border will be a prominent part of the discussion. well, cadre leak is a senior policy fellow at the european council. she says the u. s. con, meets the count gremlins demand to keep ukraine from joining nato. i don't think by then will want to expand nato touring his term in office, but clearly not in his plans, but stopping it officially for goods, but would require a unanimous decision by all nato allies and actually the redrafting, some of nato's internal documents. so he cannot clearly deliver on bust him on,
12:07 pm
but i'm sure that he will try me to de escalate the situation because he doesn't need a crisis in your crane. i think put in a serious about seeking control away ukraine, future political choices. and ideally, russia really would like to discuss european political order to carry tilda and ukraine place, which should be outside nato. so i read all but mobilize ation, military mobilization as a whole west to discuss raises, who's actually putting pressure on the west to discuss the issues that the 1000 wants to discuss. because the west clearly has been shunning that conversation whenever russia has tried to make stars. and i don't think that's preparation for actual invasion like a coming weeks. but say it doesn't make it any less dangerous because i think russia is quite serious about its ends. so we could still see
12:08 pm
