Donald Trump`s offer to help India and Pakistan resolve the Kashmir issue became a major controversy after India rejected the US president`s claim that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had requested it. As the U.S. government tries to downplay Trump`s remarks by calling the Kashmir issue « bilateral » to « discuss India and Pakistan, » the focus has shifted again to previous « bilateral agreements, » whose 1972 Simla Agreement (or Shimla Agreement), signed by then-Indian and Pakistani Prime Ministers Indira Gandhi and Zulfikar Ali Bhutto , for friendly relations between the two countries. Whether 12 years before Shimla (the Indus Waters Treaty) or only in 2018 for Kulbhushan Jadhav, India sought third-party interventions and accepted a multilaterally negotiated pact and a global forum shutdown. But we must remind the world that less than 14 years after Shimla, India began in both letters and mental wounds. The agreement emphasizes 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 hostile propaganda. The Lahore Declaration was a bilateral agreement and a government agreement between India and Pakistan. The treaty was signed on 21 February 1999, at the end of a historic summit in Lahore, and ratified the same year by the parliaments of both countries. The declaration was signed by Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif. This agreement is ratified by both countries in accordance with their respective constitutional procedures and enters into force from the date of exchange of ratification instruments.  The agreement was agreed upon and was signed after the Indo Pak War of 1971, after which East Pakistan was liberated, which led to the creation of Bangladesh. Shimla Agreement: July 2, 1972Shimla: What is it? The Shimla Agreement was signed on 2 July 1972 by Indira Gandhi, then Indian Prime Minister, and by Pakistani President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, after the 1971 India-Pakistan War that liberated East Pakistan and led to the creation of Bangladesh.
Among them, India and Pakistan have decided to abandon the conflict of the past and focus on building lasting friendship, peace and cooperation between them.
