UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will attend the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, his spokesman said on Thursday, after the United States announced a diplomatic boycott and several other Western nations followed suit.
Axar.az informs that this was reported by foreign media.
"The secretary-general received an invitation from the International Olympic Committee to attend the opening of the Beijing Winter Games and he has accepted it," spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters.
The White House said on Monday that US officials would stay away from the games. Beijing has slammed the move, with the Foreign Ministry saying it would only lead to a loss of America's “moral authority and credibility”.
