The representative of the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's office said that the country's authorities have not yet made a decision regarding the swap of the upcoming Winter Olympic Games.
He also confirmed that It is about a diplomatic boycott, stressing that Johnson opposes a sports boycott, writes Reuters.
Earlier, information that the UK is considering a political boycott of the Winter Olympic Games in Beijing appeared in The Times. As it was clarified, the national team is planned to take part in the competitions, but the officials will probably not go to China. Human rights violations in the PRC were declared as the reason.
The competition will be held from 4 to 20 February 2022.
