Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations


Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations

News: The Indian External Affairs Ministry reminded the UK Government about the Vienna Convention after ProKhalistan protestors took down the Indian flag at UK High commission in London.

About Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations:

→ Entered into force on April 24 1964, the Convention is nearly universally ratified, with Palau and South Sudan being the exceptions.

→ It provides a complete framework for the establishment/maintenance/termination of diplomatic relations on a basis of consent between independent sovereign States.

→ It codifies the longstanding custom of diplomatic immunity, in which diplomatic missions are granted privileges, enabling diplomats to function without fear of coercion or harassment by the host country.

→ It affirms the concept of “inviolability” of a diplomatic mission, which has been one of the enduring cornerstones of international diplomacy.

→ Article 22 of the Convention deals with obligations with regard to the premises of the Mission – the receiving/host State is mandated to take all appropriate steps to protect the premises of the mission against any intrusion or damage.
