Sister City Agreement Between India And China

However, it was clarified that the denunciation of the city-partner agreement has no impact on the completion of projects already underway. Thereafter, the parties are free to conclude a new agreement for a further period of five years through friendship councils. The two countries also created a forum for heads of state and government to strengthen cooperative federalism, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar said. “An agreement was also signed on the relationship between the sister and the state and the twin city.” In addition, all disputes arising from the interpretation, application or implementation of a provision of the Agreement shall be settled amicably through consultations or negotiations between the two countries. The agreement does not create binding obligations between the two countries. Three other Indian cities will have twin cities in China and provincial relations will be established between Karnataka and Sichuan. City agreements remain in force for a period of five years, unless one of the parties communicates in writing to the other party its intention to terminate the contract at least three months in advance. The urban agreement will make it possible to exchange with delegations, interact between institutions and exchange experiences in areas of mutual interest. In order to promote closer engagement in the fields of public policy, education, health, science and technology, tourism and culture, the two countries not only agreed to establish relations between the twinned cities, but also expressed their intention to set up implementation mechanisms. .
