Biden: Russia and China are confident that the days of democracy are numbered – International panorama
WASHINGTON, January 6. / TASS /. Russia and China are “betting” that the days of democracy are numbered. This opinion was expressed by American President Joe Biden.
China. They really told me that democracy is too slow, too mired in division, to thrive in today’s fast-paced complex world. “They are betting that America is a place for an autocrat, a dictator, a tough ruler. who we should ever be. “
“This is not a country of kings, dictators or autocrats,” Biden added.
The President made a similar statement in December at the opening of the Summit for Democracy organized by Washington online. Last week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the term “democratic state” in modern realities has lost its meaning, today it is insignificant about “who is now democracy, who is not democracy.” As the minister noted, at the summit, first of all, countries are represented, following in the wake of US policy, as well as some of those who have their own vision of order and want to maintain good relations with the United States.
