The Chinese government has always paid high attention to anti-doping work, and has zero-tolerance for doping. Meanwhile, we oppose the acts of politicizing sports, Hua Chunying, the spokesperson of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said on Tuesday at a press conference. “We propose the protection of the legal rights of clean athletes and guard the fairness, justice and purity of international sports.”

Hua noted that Russia is an important member of the Olympic community. There are enormous high-level athletes in Russia who are healthy, optimistic and love the great cause of the Olympic spirit. They have made contributions to pushing forward the development of the Olympic Games.
