STATEMENT ON THE ASCENSION OF INDIAN LEGISLATORS TO THE INTER-PARLIAMENTARY ALLIANCE ON CHINA (IPAC)
It is our privilege today to lead the first group of Indian legislators to join the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China.
The government of the People’s Republic of China poses an unprecedented challenge to human rights and the international rules based order.
In India, we know from first hand experience the PRC government’s increasingly belligerent approach to its neighbours in the Indo-Pacific. The PRC’s use of military threats and intimidation are greatly destabilising and a grave threat to peace in the region.
We have also seen the impact of the PRC government’s brutal oppression. India is proud to have provided a home to tens of thousands Tibetans fleeing persecution.
As the world’s largest democracy, India must be at the forefront of efforts to defend our common democratic values.
These challenges are bigger than any one country or political party, and so we are glad to join with IPAC parliamentarians from across the world in a united effort towards democracy, peace and prosperity in Asia and beyond.
