New Delhi, January 27
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said it is important to respect peaceful protests, freedom of assembly and non-violence.
Guterres’ spokesman Stephane Dujarric, in his response to a question on the violence in New Delhi during his daily press briefing on Tuesday, said:
“As we say in many of these cases, I think it’s important to respect peaceful protests, freedom of assembly and non-violence.”
The farmers have been sitting on the outskirts of Delhi for over two months with the Government refusing to budge on their demand to repeal three farm acts approved during the Covid pandemic last year.
