Simla Agreement Article 370

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. [4] The agreement was the result of the two countries` determination to “end the conflict and confrontation that have so far affected their relations.” It designed the measures to be taken to further normalize mutual relations and also defined the principles that should govern their future relations. [4] [5] [3] At the fourth Commemoration Ceremony of Ramnath Goenka, Jaishankar advocated a foreign policy that values change and is not a status, since he cited important past events in Indian history such as the defeat of the war with China in 1962, the De Simla Agreement and the “inaction” after the Mumbai terrorist attacks, to compare them to India`s more dynamic attitude after 2014. 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 promise that “no party shall unilaterally change the situation” invalidates, under international law, the attempt to dismember J&K`s special status in violation of this bilateral agreement and UN Security Council resolutions. Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar said on Thursday that the treatment of Pakistan raised many questions in the past and said the 1972 Simla Agreement had led to a “revanchist” Pakistan and persistent problems in Jammu and Kashmir, praising the “courageous steps” taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his relations with the neighboring country. Russian envoy to India Nikolay Kudashev today reiterated Moscow`s position on Kashmir to reporters in Delhi, saying that the repeal of Article 370 is India`s internal affair: “All affairs between India and Pakistan can be resolved by the Simla agreement. This is an internal matter of India,” he said. The agreement did not prevent relations between the two countries from deteriorating into armed conflict, most recently during the 1999 Kargil war.

In Operation Meghdoot in 1984, India seized the entire inhospitable Siachen Glacier region, where the border was not clearly defined in the agreement (perhaps because the area was deemed too arid to be controversial); This was seen by Pakistan as a violation of the Simla Agreement….
