India has followed a foreign policy on International peace and cooperation since its independence. India adopted Nehru ‘Panchsheel” as a cornerstone of its foreign policy, one of them is non-intervention principle.

India respect sovereignty and integrity of every nation and do not interfere in the domestic matters of other nations and follows policy non­intervention.

But the changing scenario of international politics led India to think again and reformulate its foreign policy. Even when the nations are demanding right to intervention on economic, political or strategic grounds, India has not abandoned ‘non-intervention’.

India participated and signed international treaties and pacts, bilateral agreements with many countries, to maintain peace and cooperation.


All these active affords made India on emerging political leader in the world. For the recent example, even at the time of Kargil; India did not intervene into Pakistan and this strategy was praised all over the world.
