Estrada Doctrine

Estrada Doctrine-

Since reognition has been construed as approval (and non-recognition,disapproval) of a govt established through political upheaval, a state may not issue a declaration giving recognition to such govt, but merely accept whatever govt is in effective control without raising the issue of recognition. Dealing or not dealing with the govt is not a judgement on the legitimacy of the said govt.
