Beijing [China]June 29 : Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday highlighted the relevance of India’s 'Panjil’ to resolve current conflicts during a conference in Beijing to mark the 70th anniversary of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence.

The contact established through the spread of Buddhism in China laid the historical basis for India and China to develop the Panchsheela principles together, the Ministry of External Affairs said.
