Dr. S Jaishankar stated that every country approaches democracy, good governance, and human rights from its history, tradition, as well as its societal context.
Washington: India doesn’t believe that democracy’s efficacy or quality should be determined by outsiders, said S Jaishankar, External Affairs Minister. He stated that each country approaches democracy and human rights based on its history, tradition, and societal context.
We talked over the last two days of our commitment to practice and further democracy, human rights, and good governance,” Jaishankar said to reporters at a joint news conference with Antony Blinken, the US Secretary of State.
Jaishankar stated that each country approaches these issues from its own history, tradition, as well as its societal context.
The integrity of democratic processes, their credibility with the people, and nondiscriminatory delivery and receipt of public goods are our criteria for judging them. He stated that India doesn’t believe (others) should decide the efficacy, or indeed the quality, of democracy.
We are the two largest democracies in the world, and we are also committed to an enduring endeavor, as our founders stated, to form a better union.
“This is a project that we both love,” Blinken stated.
He stated that the two countries must work together to demonstrate their ability to meet the needs of their citizens.
Blinken stated that “We must keep ourselves and our fellow democracies accountable to our core values.” This includes respecting universal human rights such as freedom of religion or belief and freedom of expression. It makes our democracies more powerful.
