US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken delivered a speech on the country’s foreign policy. According to him, the new US administration will not overthrow regimes and promote democracy in other countries by force.
“We will not promote democracy through costly military interventions or attempts to overthrow authoritarian regimes by force. We have tried this tactic in the past. Whatever good intentions we had, it didn’t work, ”said Mr Blinken (quoted from The Financial Times).
Anthony Blinken also said that China is “the biggest geopolitical test” in this century. He referred Russia to “serious challenges”.

Yesterday, March 2, the United States imposed sanctions against the Russian Federation due to the situation with opposition leader Alexei Navalny, accusing the Russian authorities of violating human rights.
