This was stated by the director of the communication department of the Office of the President of the Slovak Republic, Jozef Matej, in connection with the diplomatic boycott of the Olympics, which was announced by several states.

“The President of the Slovak Republic, Zuzana Čaputová, is not considering participating in the Winter Olympics in Beijing,” Matej said, adding that the head of state did not even plan to participate. The reason was also the pandemic situation.

The United States announced a diplomatic boycott of the Olympic Games in Beijing this week in connection with China’s “genocide” against the Uighur minority in the Xinjiang region and other human rights violations. Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom joined them.

Slovak MEP Miriam Lexmann (KDH) announced on Wednesday that she had co-initiated a call on the presidents of the European Union institutions, as well as three top Slovak constitutional officials, for a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Olympics.

According to her, the world cannot afford to turn a blind eye to the unprecedented violations of the human rights of religious and ethnic minorities by the Chinese Communist Party.
