70th Anniversary of the Cairo Declaration sponsored by

the Xiamen University South China Sea Institute

(XMU-SCSI) was held at Xiamen University on 27-28

September 2013. Attending the conference were over 20

experts, professors and scholars from both sides of the

Taiwan Straits, who engaged in lively discussions lasting

two days on topics such as the history of the Cairo

Declaration and its current international influence, the

impact of the Cairo Declaration on the Sino-Japanese

Chunyi of the Center for International Legal Studies of

the College of International Affairs of the National

Chengchi University of Taiwan. The two professors

extended their warm welcome and appreciation to all experts, scholars and professors present. In

November 1943, the heads of China, the United States and the United Kingdom held an Allies Summit Meeting in the capital of Egypt, Cairo. On 1 December 1943, China, the United States and the United Kingdom released the Cairo Declaration simultaneously in Chongqing, Washington and London. While most countries in the world now recognize the existence of the Cairo Declaration and accept its binding force, some countries such as the United States and Japan have resorted to denying the existence and binding force of the Cairo Declaration given the changes of the international situation, in an attempt to scramble for more interest and support in international affairs. From various perspectives and with a comprehensive approach, this conference has proved the existence of the Cairo Declaration and its
