TOKYO: Japan’s government is continuing with preparations to hold the Tokyo Olympics this summer as planned, following a postponement because of the coronavirus pandemic, chief cabinet secretary Katsunobu Kato said on Wednesday.
Japan has repeatedly insisted it will hold the Games despite opinion polls showing a majority of respondents want them postponed again or canceled.
“Right now we’re working as one with everybody involved in organizing the Games to host them successfully,” Kato told a regular news conference.
