Rome, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on Thursday said no country should raise the internal affairs of other countries in its Parliament unless those matters affect the interests of that country.
According to a statement issued by the Lok Sabha Secretariat, Birla, who is currently leading an Indian Parliamentary Delegation to G20 Parliamentary Speakers' Summit (P20) being organised in Rome from October 7-8, held a bilateral meeting with the Speaker of the House of Commons of the United Kingdom Sir Lindsay Hoyle today.

On the occasion, Birla said that every country has its own sovereignty which other countries should respect.
Both leaders agreed that the Members of their Parliaments must exchange views through parliamentary diplomacy and try to find out how democratic institutions can be strengthened in the interest of the people.
Earlier today, Birla made an Intervention at the first working session on ''Response to the Social and Employment Crisis caused by the Pandemic''.
On the occasion, Birla underlined that in order to deal with global disasters in future, ''we need to treat the whole world as one 'family' and formulate an integrated and coordinated strategy to deal with global issues and Parliaments need to work together towards this goal''.
