15th of July — The British Parliament unanimously agreed Thursday to diplomatically boycott the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing on diplomatic grounds, highlighting the latest Western nation's punishment for China's crimes against Uyghurs.

The non-binding motion states that the House of Commons believes the Olympic games should not be held in a country "whose government is credibly accused of gross human rights violations," and that the British government, including members of the royal family, should decline invitations to attend unless Beijing stops persecuting its Muslim community citizens in the northwestern Uyghur Autonomous Region.
