Vital to work together to face threats to democracies : US Secretary Antony Blinken

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken stressed on the need for both India and America to stand together to face the global threats.  Being leading democracies of the world, both countries should have a vibrant civil society in order to make their democracies more open, inclusive, resilient and equitable.  When rising global threats to democracy and International freedoms it is vital to work much closer and together, Mr. Antony Blinken said addressing a civil society at a round table meeting.

Mr. Blinken is in India on his two-day visit for the first time after Joe Biden took the oath of office. Mr. Blinken appreciated India and said that India's achievements include a free media, independent courts, a vibrant and free and fair electoral system.

In both countries we’ve seen people and organisations come together throughout Covid-19 in creative and incredibly generous ways, and civil society is also where we’re able to build meaningful connections across our social, religious, and cultural differences, he said.
