Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence

The Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence are a series of agreements between China and India. After the PLA occupied Tibet, China was in direct conflict with India (see: Sino-Indian War). But both nations were newly-established and wanted the other to support herself. Therefore in 1954 the two nations drew up the 5 Prinicples, or Panch Sila:

  2. Non-aggression
  3. Non-interference
  4. Equally and mutual benefit
  5. Peaceful co-existence
