Vice President Venkaiah Naidu wants young Indian diplomats to ensure “effective diplomacy” in the wake of the fast-changing order of international relations to protect India’s national interests.

During an interaction with 41 Indian Foreign Service officers of the 2017 batch here on Friday, Naidu said they should “effectively leverage India’s core civilisational values and ethos and modern strengths of democracy, economic and other capabilities” as “proactive and effective diplomacy for advancing national interests in the challenging global environment is the need of the hour”.

Naidu also maintained that “for too long, the capacities of and opportunities offered by India have not been properly articulated in the leading and other centres of the world”.
