India diplomatic boycott of Beijing Winter Olympics: Terming as “wrong and regrettable” Beijing’s move to select a Chinese soldier involved in the Galwan incident as the Olympic torchbearer, India on Thursday said its Indian envoy will open the Winter Olympics in Beijing starting Friday. Or will not attend the closing ceremony.
It is unfortunate that China is doing this.
This decision of China is wrong, due to which New Delhi of India will boycott the Olympics at the diplomatic level.
20 Indian soldiers, including a colonel, were killed in the Galwan conflict in June 2020. Which India will never forget.
In this dispute, China admitted that it had accepted the loss of at least four of its soldiers. It is an unforgettable event that will be remembered.
India diplomatic boycott of Beijing Winter Olympics: Responding to questions on reports that a Chinese soldier has been selected as the torchbearer for the Games from the Galwan conflict, Arindam Bagchi, the official spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, said it is indeed objectionable and regrettable.
The Indian Embassy in Beijing will not attend the opening or closing ceremony of the 2022 Winter Olympics.
A few days ago, there was also a complaint of harassment of Arunachal boy by the Chinese army, which was later released by the Chinese army. All this is condemnable who returned from PLA’s captivity.
