THE THREE COUNTRIES' FIFTH CONFERENCE ENDS IN BEIJING

Author: Sergei UYANAEV

Academics from Russia, India, and China met for their Fifth Conference in Beijing on June 16 and 17 this year to discuss international joint actions and collaboration in many areas between the three countries. The Beijing Conference was a follow-up after the last in a series of meetings initiated by the Institute for Far Eastern Studies, RAS, in Moscow in 2001 and since rotated from capital to capital.

The conference agenda featured four packages of problems, in particular: global and regional aspects of international relations since the previous conference (held in Moscow in September 2004); general issues of international collaboration in view of new facts and developments in the world; prospects and areas of collaboration among Russia, China and India in energy; and commercial and economic cooperation among the three countries.

The discussions held in Beijing bore out the advance of the collaboration idea among Russia, India, and China as a system of cooperation outside political or economic blocs, which seeks to promote shared foreign policy priorities, and use mutually beneficial opportunities of multilateral cooperation with maximum effect to deal with problems facing each country in its internal socioeconomic development.

The participants reaffirmed their common belief that the conference is a vehicle of informal and, at the same time, quite representative and authoritative platform for exchanging views, coordinating approaches, and holding debates, all of which lays an academic groundwork for making three-party cooperation a reality.
