Japan is determined to organize the Olympic Games in the summer of 2021

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said on Monday that the country was “determined” to organize the Olympic Games in the summer of 2021 and declared that the event would serve “as proof that humanity has defeated the virus”.

“We are determined to organize the Olympic and Paralympic Games next summer as proof that humanity has defeated the virus,” said Yoshihide Suga in his first political speech to the Japanese parliament since his inauguration in September.
