Reuters: Australian lawmakers are calling on the government for a diplomatic boycott of Beijing Winter Olympics. This is reported by the Sydney Morning Herald. Can you comment on this?

Zhao Lijian: China has reiterated many times that the Beijing Winter Games is a stage for all winter sports athletes around the world. It is them that should be in the spotlight. We firmly believe that, under the guidance of the Olympic spirit and with concerted efforts of all sides, we will deliver a streamlined, safe and splendid Olympic Games for the world and promote the sound development of international sports cause.

China firmly rejects politicization of sports and violation of the spirit of the Olympic Charter, which only undermine the interests of athletes from all countries. The attempt at a diplomatic boycott of the Winter Olympics is doomed to fail.
