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.    (iii) Resignations shall commence upon the entry into force of this Agreement and shall be concluded within thirty days.  The Simla agreement reads like a communiqué rather than a peace agreement with a country that had gone to war with India. Nothing in the agreement has set Pakistan a future good conduct. It also contained some ridiculous expectations, such as the clause that obliges both governments to “take all measures directed in their power to prevent hostile propaganda against each other.” Other topics discussed were the repatriation of refugees to India and the liberation of Bangladesh and Pakistani nationals stranded in both countries. Pakistan has agreed to take in an unspecified number of Bangladeshi Bihari Muslims. Pakistan has also agreed to return to Bangladesh nearly 150,000 to 200,000 Bengali citizens of the new Bangladeshi nation-state. On August 7, 1972, the final agreement between India and Pakistan was signed by the two chief negotiators Parmeshwar Narain Haksar of India and Aziz Ahmed, Pakistani, on the basis of the shimla summit between Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and Pakistani President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. 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.
 While the two heads of state and government presented the entire agreement at the summit, lengthy negotiations took place over 19 meetings in nearly two months before details were released. . . .
