The Taiwanese government said Sunday it has canceled the planned visit to Japan by digital minister Audrey Tang for the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics.

Tang was scheduled to visit Japan from Monday.

According to the government, it has been informed by the International Olympic Committee that participants at the opening ceremony on Friday will be limited to heads of state and government, in addition to athletes.

The government decided to call off the visit after holding discussions with Tang.

In a voice message on Sunday, Tang said she hopes to visit Japan in the future if there is an opportunity and contribute to promoting exchanges between Japan and Taiwan.
