Tashkent Agreement 1966 Pakistan President

Despite this tragic event, the Tashkent Declaration was considered a great success of Soviet diplomacy in the settlement of international conflicts. The declaration was not well received in India. The agreement was approved by the Indian National Congress Party and the Communist Party of India, but opposition parties said the peace treaty had demoralized the country. In 1965-66, the USSR played the role of peacemaker in the conflict between India and Pakistan. Prime Minister Alexei Kosygin mediated the last day of the 10 January 1966 meetings in Tashkent, where Indian Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri and Pakistani President Ayub Khan signed a declaration formalizing the outcome of the peace negotiations. The document did not bring lasting peace to the belligerents, as the Kashmir conflict continues to this day. The unexpected death of the Indian head of state, the day after the signing of the declaration, cast a shadow over the event. Indecently, the capital of Uzbekistan still has Shastri Street, where a monument to the Indian guide stands. Indian delegations visit the site regularly; Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited him in 2015. The Tashkent Declaration was a peace agreement between India and Pakistan, signed on 10 January 1966, which resolved the 1965 Indo-Pakistan war.

Peace was achieved on 23 September by the intervention of the external powers that pushed the two nations to the truce, lest the conflict intensify and attract other powers.

The UN Security Council concluded a ceasefire on 22 September 1965. In India, the people also criticized the agreement because the Pakistani president and the Indian prime minister did not sign a guerrilla pact in Kashmir.
