Biden: Support a “Rules-Based Order” and Let the Chagossians Return!

For years US foreign policy goals have been to support a “rules-based order” in the Indo-Pacific. Facts, such as the unlawful occupation of Diego Garcia and the forced removal of its Chagossian people, demonstrate these claims are hypocritical and US actions are, by definition, rule-breaking, as Peter Harris explains in this excellent article in "The Diplomat." The new Biden administration has a chance to steer US actions away from hypocrisy and show the world the US is ready to uphold international law and justice by supporting a Chagossian returning to their homeland. Peter Harris calls on the Biden administration to "announce its support for the swift decolonization of the Chagos Archipelago," recognizing Mauritius's sovereignty over the islands.
