China has criticized the United States' diplomatic boycott of February's Winter Olympics over human rights concerns.

China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian accused the U.S. on Tuesday of violating the Olympic spirit.

Earlier, the Chinese Embassy in Washington tweeted that politicians calling for a boycott are "doing so for their own political interests and posturing."

It added that such actions have "no impact whatsoever" on the success of the Beijing Games.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Monday that the Joe Biden administration will fully support American athletes competing at the games, but won't dispatch U.S. diplomats or officials to attend.
