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 the head of state did not even plan to participate. The reason was also the pandemic situation.

What is it about?

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 (December 8) that she had co-initiated a call for the presidents of the European Union institutions as well as three top Slovak constitutional officials for a diplomatic boycott of the Olympic Games in Beijing. 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.
