Donald Trump`s offer to help India and Pakistan resolve the Kashmir issue has sparked widespread controversy after India refuted the US president`s claim that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asked a question about it. While the US administration is trying to downplay Trump`s remarks by calling the Kashmir issue “bilateral” for “India and Pakistan,” the focus has returned to previous “bilateral agreements,” including the 1972 De Simla Agreement (or Shimla), signed by then-Prime Ministers of India and Pakistan, Indira Gandhi and Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. for friendly relations between the two countries. The summit between Bhutto and Indra Gandhi opened in Simla at the set time. The Summit was held from 28 June to 2 July 1972. The objective of the agreement was to define the measures envisaged to normalize bilateral relations and settle mutual disputes through peaceful means and bilateral negotiations. India wanted to solve all the problems in one package, so it proposed a treaty of friendship obliging the two countries to renounce the use of force in the event of a dispute, not to interfere in each other`s personal internal affairs, not to seek interference by third parties in the settlement of their differences and to renounce opposing military alliances. Pakistan wanted to focus on such immediate issues as the release of prisoners of war, the withdrawal of troops and the resumption of diplomatic relations. He rejected the Indian proposal on the grounds that it would involve a lasting adoption of the Kashmir division and the withdrawal of the Kashmir dispute from the United Nations. (iii) Resignations shall commence from the entry into force of this Agreement and shall be concluded within thirty days.  The agreement was reached and signed by mutual agreement after the 1971 Indo-pak War, after which East Pakistan was liberated, which led to the formation of Bangladesh. This Agreement shall be subject to ratification by both countries in accordance with their respective constitutional procedures and shall enter into force from the date of exchange of instruments of ratification.
 Even if August 5 poses new challenges on how to revoke a state`s predatory excesses, Pakistan should draw the world`s attention to the full text of the relevant clauses of the agreement in order to strip India of its democratic cloak and its recent attempt to strangle the Kashmiri people. In the meantime, it will be very helpful if the opposition in our Parliament shows less partisanship and solidarity at this critical point with a government that is going through an unprecedented national crisis. On July 2, 1972, the two countries reached an agreement. The main clauses of the Simla Agreement are as follows: the agreement insists on respect for the sovereignty, territorial integrity, political independence and unity of the other. It also mentions non-interference in the internal affairs of the other and the flaw in hostile propaganda. The Delhi Agreement on the Repatriation of War and Civilian Internees is a tripartite agreement between the above-mentioned States, signed on 28 August 1973. The agreement was signed by Kamal Hossain, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Bangladesh, Sardar Swaran Singh, Minister of Foreign Affairs of India, and Aziz Ahmed, Minister of State for Defence and Foreign Affairs of the Government of Pakistan.    The agreement was the result of the two countries` determination to “end the conflict and confrontation that have so far affected their relations.” . .
