Japan are planning for a "complete" Olympics in front of spectators in July, according to the country's Olympic minister.
Prime minister Shinzo Abe stated on Saturday that the plan remains to stage the Games as intended in July, despite some calls for a postponement, including from United States president Donald Trump.
"I have gained support from G7," Abe said on Tuesday, "that the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games will be realized and fully held as proof of mankind's victory against the new coronavirus.
"We will plan and co-ordinate so that the Games will be held as planned, including the organizing committee and the IOC (International Olympics Committee), and with WHO (World Health Organization) on the coronavirus."
The IOC is due to meet on Tuesday to discuss the Olympics and the qualifying events that have had schedules badly affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking at a news conference, Olympic minister Seiko Hashimoto echoed Abe's confidence that the Tokyo Games would be going ahead.
When asked whether the intention is to stage a "complete" Olympics, with fans present and abiding by the schedule, she replied: "That's correct. That's what we are aiming for.
"We will do our utmost to prepare as scheduled so that the IOC will be convinced we are capable of hosting the games."
Japan has had 847 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 28 deaths.
