Press Conference by the Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary (Excerpt)

[Provisional Translation]

REPORTER: (…) The media overseas has reported that the Government of Japan has unofficially drawn the conclusion of canceling the Tokyo Olympics due to the novel coronavirus situation. The media also reported that Japan would aim to host the 2032 games. What are the facts about this?
DEPUTY CHIEF CABINET SECRETARY: What is being reported is factually incorrect. I would like to deny the media report categorically.
REPORTER: I have a follow-up question to your response regarding reports that the decision has been made to cancel the Games. You denied the report. That reporting stated that Japan would aim to secure hosting the 2032 Games, if this year’s Games were to be canceled. I would like to confirm if you are also refuting that part, or if that is a separate matter.
DEPUTY CHIEF CABINET SECRETARY: I denied that part of the reporting too.
