Secretary of State Blinken expressed support for &# 171; Declarations against the use of arbitrary detention in interstate relations&# 187;
US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken welcomed Canada’s Declaration Against the Use of Arbitrary Detention in Interstate Relations.
“It is a great honor for me to participate in launching this important initiative and today, together with the international community, oppose the use of arbitrary detention in interstate relations. I congratulate Canada for setting an example and meeting the approval of so many nations, ”he said..
“Arbitrary detention is prohibited by international human rights conventions,” Blinken recalled. “When used in an attempt to gain leverage in international relations, which too many countries do, they constitute a heinous violation of the rights of the person concerned and an affront to the norms of international diplomacy. The broad coalition of governments endorsing this declaration makes it clear that history remains on the side of human rights and the rule of law, not the cynical use of the law as a political tool.. People are not a bargaining chip. The United States fully supports this declaration and calls on all countries of the same view to work together to put pressure on countries that carry out such detentions to end the practice, release those detained in such conditions, and respect the rule law and human rights “.
