Taiwan and Hong Kong may send teams for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics to Beijing despite ongoing political tensions with China, the International Olympic Committee said on August 1. Beijing was awarded the 2022 Games in February 2015, becoming the first city to host both the Summer and Winter Games.

The contract of the host city was more precise than expected. We saw signs in 2015 that this would be different. China was evident that the Olympic Charter of 2015 was respected, “IOC Director Christophe Dubi said on August 1.

China has stepped up efforts to assert its sovereignty claims, including regular flights of fighter planes and bombers near ruling Taiwan, which takes part in the Olympics at Beijing’s urging as “Chinese Taipei.” China considers Taiwan as a part of China and has never ruled out using force to bring the island under its control. Taiwan has been angered by repeated Chinese military exercises near the island, and China has criticized the United States for stepping up support for the island. Particularly problematic are concerned about his Olympic committee’s participation in Beijing next February.

Hong Kong, which has a separate National Olympic Committee from China but formally calls itself China, has struggled for a high degree of autonomy since Britain returned the territory to China in 1997. Critics say freedoms have been trampled on and say Hong Kong should be formally rejected.

IOC spokesman Mark Adams said the Chinese in Taipei and Hong Kong are two of the IOC’s 206 National Olympic Committees. The Taipei Olympic Committee and the Hong Kong Olympic Committee jointly participated in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.
