China on Thursday re-invoked the doctrine of Panchsheel - the five principle of peaceful co-existence - as the template for addressing India's concerns over the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and the China-led Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

He further added, "While Pakistan-Economic -Corridor is between Islamabad and Beijing and we suggest India no to drag Kashmir into it".

"I want to reiterate that we would like to follow the five principles (Panchsheel) of coexistence in developing friendly relations with other countries including our efforts in promoting regional", she said.

"So I think in this way the concerns from the Indian side must be addressed".

"I am sure you also noticed that during the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, President Xi Jinping also mentioned that we follow the principle of peaceful coexistence to promote the friendly cooperation along the Belt and Road".

"Adding insult to injury for India is the very name of the project, CPEC, although the region through which it passes does not belong either to Pakistan or to China", he said. However, there were reports that Ministry of External Affairs had opposed it and the visit was postponed.

To allay India's fears, the Chinese foreign ministry put out a statement today.

By joining worldwide organisations such as the China-led Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) India wants to gain more global influence, it said.

Separately, a speech by former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru during the Asian Prime Ministers Conference in Colombo had also cited Panchsheel as the touchstone of peaceful worldwide relations.

In a series of tweets, Consul General of the People's Republic of China in Kolkata, Ma Zhanwu on Wednesday said Beijing's position on the Kashmir issue is consistent and clear and it is irrelevant to link One Belt One Road with it.

India even skipped China's high-profile Belt and Road Forum last week. "It was not finalised so we still look forward to her visit to China in coming months and if not this year then next year", Zhanwu said.Mamata is scheduled to visit China next month.

"India has clearly signaled by not participating in the One Belt One Road conference that New Delhi is against the Chinese connectivity project".
