Suga says determined to host Olympics in Tokyo

Japan's Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga noted on Friday he was "determined" to host "safe and secure" Olympic Games this summer in Tokyo.

The event will help the world demonstrate "global unity" and United States President Joe Biden "expressed support" for it, Suga added at a press conference at the White House.

Earlier this week, Japanese media reported that the games may be canceled if the health situation in the country worsens due to another resurgence of the coronavirus.
