The agreement is the result of the two countries` determination to “end the conflict and confrontation that have so far weighed on their relations.” He designed the steps to be taken to further normalize mutual relations and also defined the principles that should govern their future relations. [4] [3] This agreement is ratified by both countries in accordance with their respective constitutional procedures and enters into force from the date of exchange of the ratification instruments. [4] In order to begin the lasting peace process, both governments agreed that Indian and Pakistani troops would be withdrawn along their side of the international border. The line of control between Jammu and Kashmir would be identical to that of 17 December 1971. Both countries would respect the international border and the withdrawal of the armed forces would be completed within 30 days of the implementation of the agreement. (iii) Withdrawals will begin on the effective date of this agreement and will be concluded within 30 days. [4] The agreement did not prevent relations between the two countries from deteriorating to the armed conflict, the last time during the 1999 Kargile War. In Operation Meghdoot of 1984, India seized the entire inhospitable region of the Siachens Glacier, where the border was clearly not defined in the agreement (perhaps because the area was considered too arid to be controversial); This was considered by Pakistan to be a violation of the Simla agreement. Most of the subsequent deaths in the Siachen conflict were caused by natural disasters. B, like the avalanches of 2010, 2012 and 2016. The summit conference between Bhutto and Indra Gandhi opened in Simla on the agreed date.

The summit conference was held from June 28 to July 2, 1972. The objective of the agreement was to define the measures envisaged to normalize bilateral relations and to resolve 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 that required the two countries to refrain from the use of force in dispute resolution, not to interfere in each other`s internal affairs, not to participate in the settlement of their disputes and to renounce military alliances directed against each other. Pakistan wanted to focus on issues as immediate as the release of prisoners of war, the withdrawal of troops and the resumption of diplomatic relations. It rejected the Indian proposal on the grounds that it would imply a lasting adoption of the partition of Kashmir and the withdrawal of the UN Kashmir dispute. The agreement reaffirms that efforts are being made to put an end, as far as possible, to all these differences and disagreements that have led to differences between the two countries over the past 25 years. The two governments have also agreed to do everything in their power to prevent hostile propaganda against each other.
