protects other, related human rights, and advances democracy outside the United States; and
(B)
makes clear its importance to United States foreign policy goals of stability, security, development, and diplomacy;
(3)
should be a guide for the strategies and activities of relevant Federal agencies; and

should inform the Department of Defense quadrennial defense review under section 118[1] of title 10 and the Department of State Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review.
