US Summit for Democracy receives international criticism
The White House is organizing the second so-called Summit for Democracy on March 29-30, even though its first edition, held in 2021, has drawn widespread criticism from the international community. Two experts share their views on the event with China Daily.
Carlos Martinez, an editor with Friends of Socialist China, a London-based website, said, "The US' democracy is money democracy and the Summit for Democracy is really a summit for imperialism."
David Castrillon-Kerrigan, a professor and researcher at Externado University of Colombia, said this year's so-called Summit for Democracy is an event that is "neither a summit nor about democracy, but rather an outright attempt by the Biden administration to line up and indoctrinate key partners against countries that it perceives as rivals."
