Tokyo | Leaders from around 15 countries are expected to attend Friday's opening ceremony of the Covid-hit Tokyo Olympics. Reports in Japan have suggested that those attending the ceremony in person could be as low as 1,000 due to the pandemic.
The decision to limit the number of attendees during the opening ceremony at the National Stadium here was taken in view of the organisers' efforts to control the raging Covid-19 pandemic.
Around 70 cabinet-level officials are also set to visit Japan. But there is still uncertainty over the number of VIPs attending the opening ceremony.
World leaders who have already promised their attendance in the opening ceremony are French President Emmanuel Macron, Mongolian Prime Minister Luvsannamsrai Oyun-Erdene and US first lady Jill Biden among others.
