Originating in talks between China and India regarding Tibet in 1953 and 1954, the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence include mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, mutual nonaggression, noninterference in each other’s internal affairs, equality and mutual benefit, and peaceful coexistence. More than fifty years later the principles still apply to maintaining relations in Asia and around the world.
