(1) The Chinese government has agreed to establish (a) Yatung, (b) Gyantse and (c) Phari as commercial markets. The Indian authorities agree that trade in India, including places such as (a) Kalimpong, (b) Siliguri and (c) Calcutta, may be carried out in accordance with usual practice. I have the honour to explain that, on 29 April 1954 in Beijing, the respective plenipotentiaries of the two Governments signed an Agreement between the Government of the Republic of India and the Central Government of the People`s Republic of China on trade and commerce between the Tibet region and India, namely for the Government of the Republic of India. In accordance with this agreement, it is agreed between the two governments that within six (6) months from the date of exchange of these notes, the Government of India will look forward to the complete withdrawal of the military companions currently deployed in Yatung and Gyantse, in the Tibet region of China. The Chinese government will provide facilities and support in the event of this withdrawal. The 1954 agreement covers the Calcutta Agreement, the Treaty of Lhasa, the agreement between Great Britain and China on respect for Tibet, the Anglo-Russian agreement, the Anglo-Chinese trade rules of 1908 and 1914, the amendment of the Treaty of Aitchison of 1938, the failure of the Tibetan appeal to the UN, the Sino-Tibetan agreement of 1951, the Sino-Indian negotiations on Tibet, From 1951 to 1953, and Sino-India Conference on Tibetan Trade and Sexual Relations, from December 1953 to April 1954.  The Agreement between the Republic of India and the People`s Republic of China on Trade and Transport between the Tibet Region of China and India of 1954 was signed in Beijing on April 29, 1954 and contained the first formal codification of the five principles of peaceful coexistence. . . .
