Diplomatic boycott of Winter Olympic Games.

United States Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced today (2 Teves 5782) that the United States will not be sending a dimplomatic presence to the Winter Olympic Games in China. She said that this would send a message to China that it is not "business as usual" because of human rights abuses. Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian had already said that the United States "should stop hyping the so-called 'diplomatic boycott' of the Beijing Winter Games, lest it should affect bilateral dialogue and cooperation in important areas. If the US is bent on having its own way, China will take resolute countermeasures.". It is not yet clear what "resolute countermeasures" China will take.
