Antony Blinken, the secretary of state from the Democratic party took a step to scrap an official blueprint that belonged to his predecessor. The step was taken in order to put a limit on the promotion of international human rights by America. It was with regard to the issues dealing with the matters of property and religious freedom all the way disregarding the social issues. They include the rights related to reproduction and the community of LGBTQ.
Antony Blinken On Human Rights
Antony Blinken also spoke on the report stating that it was not an ideal one. He added that the report was to be made with an aim to seek the count of freedoms that were prioritized in the foreign policy of the United States. However, he claimed that it failed to carry the reflection of the policies of the administration of the current President, Joe Biden. The report that was submitted from the commission of Mike Pompeo, the former state secretary, had seen heavy criticism by the groups of human rights.
Antony Blinken spoke about the subject of human rights. He stated that human rights have to be universal. It is something that everybody is entitled to irrespective of beliefs, personal choices, love interest, or place of birth. He further added that all human rights are equal. The system of hierarchy in human rights is illogical. There are no rights that are more important than some other rights.
On the issue of the blueprints created by the Republicans, Antony Blinken stated that the statements advocating the system of hierarchy in the field of human rights are contradictory to the policies of the Democratic party. The guiding document of the party points somewhere else. He claimed that the administration would do whatever had been promised.
