Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted his upset about the “riots and violence” in Washington. “The orderly and peaceful transfer of power must continue. The democratic process must not be allowed to be undermined by illegal protests, ”he wrote..

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on Facebook on Thursday: “We again draw attention to the fact that the electoral system in the United States is archaic, it does not meet modern democratic standards, creating opportunities for numerous violations, and the American media have become an instrument of political struggle.” She added: “We wish the friendly American people a dignified experience of this dramatic moment in their own history.”.

Taiwan’s Foreign Ministry on Thursday expressed regret over the unrest. The agency sent out an emergency notification to Taiwanese citizens “to heighten their vigilance and pay attention to safety” in connection with the imposition of a curfew in Washington.

Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokesman Zahid Hafiz Choudhry told reporters Thursday that the government is closely following developments in Washington. “We hope that the situation will return to normal soon and will not in any way affect the current transition process,” he said..

Pakistani aide to Prime Minister Imran Khan Rauf Hasan said in an interview with Voice of America that the storming of the Capitol proves that the United States has no “moral right to comment on democratic principles in other countries.” “If the United States saw what the United States was doing in the United States, the United States would invade the United States to free the United States from the tyranny of the United States,” Hasan tweeted..

Shariman Lokman, an analyst at the Institute for Strategic and International Studies in Malaysia, told Voice of America that the unrest “does not make America look its best … It only exacerbates the negative perceptions that people already have about America. You cannot deal properly with COVID and how elections should be held. You [the US government] teach us all the time how to organize ourselves, but you cannot organize yourself properly. “.

South Korean ruling party member Song Yong-gil wrote on Facebook: “Such behavior can be used by dictatorships who want to justify their behavior. I look forward to the United States rebuilding its system. “.
