Summary

This resolution urges the International Olympic Committee to consider that the Olympic Charter's principles of solidarity and nondiscrimination are hard to reconcile with holding the 2022 Winter Games in China, a country that the resolution states stands credibly accused of perpetuating crimes against humanity and genocide against ethnic and religious minorities.
