New Delhi, July 6: Faced with escalating tensions between two neighbors, China said India had “violated” the Panchsheel Pact by deploying its territory. Beijing has urged New Delhi to withdraw its troops to avoid “a worsening of the situation” on their border. Beijing also said India was “misleading” to its citizens by saying that Doklam is at the tripartite intersection of India, Bhutan and China.

The appropriate code of conduct for a globalized world would be the five principles of peaceful coexistence and not the domination of a superpower or a group of nations. The United Nations should be at the heart of this world order. Any intervention in the interests of human rights or democracy should be done by the United Nations or with the express agreement of the United Nations. To this end, we believe that the United Nations should be reformed and that the UN Security Council should be expanded and made more representative of humanity as a whole, including the representation of the world`s large, highly populated and democratic developing countries. I believe that China and India, as co-authors of the Five Principles, can work together to achieve such a democratic transformation of the world body, in order to serve the interests and aspirations of humanity.
In this regard, I would like to quote the great Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping in December 1988: “In recent years, there have been comments that the next century was the Asia-Pacific century. I do not agree with that view. Although we include the Far East region of the Soviet Union and the western part of the United States and Canada, the population is still only about 300 million, while the total population of two countries [China and India] is 1.8 billion. If China and India don`t develop, you can`t call it the Asian century. Deng`s words are more true today when the total population of China and India exceeds two billion and represents two-fifths of humanity. On April 29, 1954, Panchsheel or the five principles of peaceful coexistence were formally pronounced for the first time in the trade and transport agreement between the Tibetan region of China and India. In its preamble, it stated that the two governments have decided to conclude this agreement on the basis of the following principles:- Read also – Pakistan violates the ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir Rajouri, 2 Army Jawans Martyred Now, in this article, tell us what was the panch-cheel agreement between India and China and why was it made? Thanks to the economic reforms launched by Deng and followed with energy by successive leaders, China is now dazzling the world with its economic progress. India has also escaped from its slow-growing syndrome and has become a changing, changing and evolving economy. In this new phase of development, India and China can exchange many things and work together. Such cooperation, which will also involve other countries in the rapidly developing region, will mark the beginning of the true Asian century that Deng Xiaoping has visualized.
Along with China and India, the new century will continue to turn to Asian destiny – not a fate isolated from the rest of the world, but a part of the world`s destiny.
