Washington: US has expressed confidence over India`s ability to address its current political disputes through its own democratic system.
"We are confident that India is going to be able to address its current political disputes, its internal issues,
through its own democratic system," State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters at her daily news conference.
Notably, social activist Anna Hazare`s hunger strike for a strong Lokpal has triggered huge protests across India.

"We support peaceful protest. India has a strong, vibrant democracy, and that`s where we stand," Nuland said in response to a question.
