The Kremlin: Biden’s call for a democracy summit is an attempt to divide countries

The Kremlin considered on Wednesday that US President Joe Biden’s democracy summit, to which neither Russia nor China have invited, aims to “divide” countries.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a press conference that “the United States prefers to create new dividing lines, dividing countries between those that are good, in his opinion, and those that are bad”.

And the president of the United States, Joe Biden, has invited leaders of some 110 countries to participate in a virtual summit on democracy that he intends to organize next December.

Biden did not invite China, the United States’ main rival, to this summit, which will be held on 9 and 10 December, unlike what was done with Taiwan, in a move that would anger Beijing.

In addition to the US’s western allies, the list mostly included countries like India and Pakistan, but in compensation was absent from Turkey, a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

On the contrary, Biden has invited Brazil to the summit, even as the giant Latin American country is led by a controversial far-right president, Jair Bolsonaro.

From Europe, the list of invited countries included Poland, which the European Union accuses of not respecting the rule of law, but in exchange was lacking in Hungary, which is led by a controversial Prime Minister, Viktor Orban.

As for the brown continent, the list of invited countries included South Africa, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nigeria and Niger.
