Taiwan’s athletic team for the Beijing Winter Olympics has confirmed it will be at the opening and closing ceremonies after being told by the International Olympic Committee it was required to participate

Taiwan, a Chinese-claimed nation, has feared officials in Beijing could “downgrade” Taiwan’s status by placing its athletes alongside those from Hong Kong, a country run by China.
