China didn’t infringe a”single square of overseas property” nor did it provoke a”lone warfare” from the previous 70 decades, a Chinese government policy paper released on Friday stated.
In reality, Beijing’s accomplishment in resolving land boundary disputes together with 12 of its 14 acquaintances at the previous seven years broke”new floor” in settling bilateral boundary issues carried over from background, the policy paper included. Beijing considers resolving territorial delimitation disputes through discussion and consultation, the record stated.
“China protects world peace through actual actions. Within the last 70 decades, China hasn’t provoked one war or battle, nor invaded one square of foreign territory,” the white paper titled, “China and the World from the New Era”, published by China’s State Councilor Cabinet explained.
“China has attained full resolution of property boundary delimitation issues with 12 of its 14 neighboring nations and delineated the China-Vietnam maritime boundary in the Beibu Gulf. It has broken new ground for settling inter-country problems carried over from history in addition to other foreign disputes. China has played a significant role in settling major regional and international problems,” it stated.
“In 2015 China declared it would establish a ten-year, US$1 billion China-UN Peace and Development Fund, which had been formally, place it into operation in 2016. China has always been devoted to solving territorial and maritime delimitation disputes through discussion and consultation,” the white paper said.
The policy paper did not name the two nations with which Beijing has been getting land boundary disputes — India and Bhutan.
India and China went to war across the boundary dispute in 1962 with each accusing the other of aggression and surreptitious attempts to seize control of more land area.
Only a couple of decades back, in 2017, border troops in both nations were caught in a 73-day army standoff following Indian troops ceased Chinese troops from construction infrastructure at Doklam (Donglang), close to the Sikkim border, a strategic place under Chinese control but maintained by Bhutan.
The Sino-India boundary dispute stretches for almost 3500 km and both nations have experienced over 40 rounds of discussions to solve it.
The 22nd round of discussions under the present mechanics of”Special Representatives” was suddenly postponed earlier this season. China blamed”India’s program” for its delay.
The postponement came from the background of China’s powerful criticism of India altering the status of Jammu and Kashmir and converting Ladakh into a marriage territory from a country.
The boundary dispute is expected to be discussed if Prime Minister Narendra Modi meets President Xi Jinping to its next round of this”casual summit” in India next month.
All these have become fundamental criteria for global connections and basic principles of global law,” the document stated.
Under the other sub-head”Creating Global Partnerships”, the document stated:
“China sees its neighboring states as the basis of its development and prosperity.
