US President Joe Biden on Friday backed Japan's efforts to hold the Games "safe and secure" this year, following the cancellation of the Olympic Games due to the Covid-19 epidemic.
When Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga met US President Biden as his first foreign guest, he said his country was listening to experts and was doing its best to prepare for the Tokyo Games.
The prime minister added that I expressed my determination to realize the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games as a symbol of worldwide unity this summer, and President Biden another time expressed his support.
It was later said that US President Joe Biden supported Prime Minister Suga's efforts to secure the Summer Olympics and Paralympic Games.
In a statement, both leaders expressed their pride in the United States and athletes of Japan who have trained for these Games and will be competing in the best traditions of the Olympic spirit.
The Tokyo Games are set to open in July, but after being postponed a year ago due to the epidemic, only Japanese spectators will be able to see the stands.
Unpredictability about their viability has grown amid rising virus cases.
Organizers said on Friday that they discarded another leg of Japan's Olympic torch relay and the third leg to be affected by a surge in infections and also that a test event known as BMX Freestyle scheduled for 24 and 25 April would now be postponed.
Toshihiro Nikkei is a top official in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party. He caused a stir on Thursday by saying that Japan may have to cancel the Olympics, which has become increasingly popular among Japanese people.
