Joe Biden has invited Taiwan to a virtual summit on democracy alongside more than 100 countries -- a move bound to anger China, which is not on the list. The conference was a campaign pledge by the US president, who has placed the struggle between democracies and "autocratic governments" at the heart of his foreign policy.


New Delhi, 24 November 2021

As per news report of NDTV, The "Summit for Democracy" will take place online on December 9 and 10 ahead of an in-person meeting at its second edition next year. The meeting was long advertised, but the guest list -- published Tuesday on the State Department's website -- will be closely scrutinized. Unsurprisingly, America's main rivals China and Russia are not on it. But the United States did invite Taiwan, which it does not recognize as an independent country but holds up as a model democracy.
