India announced a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing winter Olympics as China decided to feat a military commander who took part in the Galwan clash.The Indian government said that their top diplomat in Beijing would not participate in the opening and closing ceremonies of the winter Olympics event. The External affairs ministry said it had lodged a strong protest against politicizing the event. However, India will not boycott the Beijing 2022 games.

China had picked Qi Fabao, a PLA regiment commander, as one of the Olympics torchbearers. He was part of the command involved in the deadly Galwan valley clashes in 2020 and had sustained a grievous head injury. Twenty Indian soldiers were killed, and the Chinese side suffered many casualties. The two sides have held several rounds of talks to diffuse the border tension.

Many other countries have declared diplomatic boycotts of the Games, citing China's human rights record.
