  3. Assistant Secretary Robert Blake said that one of the difficult tasks in the region was to have a responsible and a responsive government, according to the report.

    How cleverly stated about the situation of the entire region instead of citing just few cases. He did not say that Bhutan is excluded from this “difficult situation”. Responsive and Responsible Governments are must for success of every state. Failure beyond critical situation calls for their intervention and they are drawn in by the situation in defense the victims of state tyranny.

    Watch, US and welcome at right time to save us from the harms of disorderly conducts of local tyrants.
