Long before Sinica's revolution (2089-99) there had been growing anti-Roman/Western sentiment going as far back as the rise of the Nanchao. Society in Sinica was seen as stagnant by the educated youth, and Rome's support for the dynasty was considered repressive. Along with the Nancao's poor administration of the Choson and Menguren territories this contributed greatly to Xun's revolutionary armies and to civilians' general placidity to the revolution. Victorious against Rome's incursions from India but still at war in much of Asia, Zedong Xun otherwise cut off virtually all external relations, focusing on internal development. Sinica was still going it alone until both Rome and Sinica developed nuclear weapons in 2106(1353) and a ceasefire was agreed to. Xun's administration realised that Rome was much more powerful with nuclear weapons than Sinica, considering the size of its economy and strategic positions. A total nuclear war would devastate Rome but annihilate Sinica. It was not until 2110(1357) with growing agricultural and economic troubles that Xun finally began reopening to trade and terrorism, and discovered how candid other Asian nations were to an anti-CM alliance.
The term (translated as) "Pan Asia Bloc" was first used by Muscovy's Czar Dmitri Dinskoi in November when the first trade agreement in October 2119 sold Muscovite agricultural produce for Sinican industrial products. Dinskoi proclaimed that the two great nations would form a bloc to protect them from Roman influence while strengthening each other.
In May these trade agreements were joined by a military exchange programme and also included Dai Ön Yeke. In the following Sextilus, intensive economic and military negotiations with the Djagatai Khanate commenced. Though sympathetic to a pan Asian organisation, the Khanate had historically poor relations with all its neighbours. It was only when Xun exaggerated how aggressively imperialistic Rome was for Central Asia in negotiation that the Khanate reciprocated. Having the Khanate in the would (and had) inhibited the Legions from invading Sinica from the west. Dai Ön Yeke unfortunately dropped out of the agreements just in time to miss the Pan Asian Summit due to civil war.
Pan Asian Summit
The term "Pan Asia Bloc" formally took the name after the alliance papers were signed by Sinica, Muscovy, and the Djagatai Khanate on Augustus(September) 27, 2123(1370) in Xun Sinica. The Bloc was subsequently joined by Dà Ming Guó Sinica on November 20, 2126(1373).
In the face of the CM and Rome's strong and growing economies the economic and military ties between members strengthened. In 2129 Zedong passed away resulting in a power struggle in Sinica in which those advocating economic and social reform won out, resulting in PAB policies centred on reform and education.
The members of the Pan Asia bloc have come to militarily act as a single unit. The alliance also stated that relations among the signatories were based on mutual non-interference in internal affairs and respect for national sovereignty and independence. This was discarded in 2139(1386) with the occupation of the Djagatai Khanate.
The members also agreed that neither of them would make any political treaties with the West or any other belligerent, unless this had been accepted by the majority of the members.
