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.
→ 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.
