The indo-pak commission

Agenda: The response to the demise of Lal Bahadur Shastri and deciding upon the continuation of the Tashkent Accords.

The Indo-Pak Commission has been formed to discuss the continuance of the Tashkent Accords, after the untimely demise of the Indian prime minister, Lal Bahadur Shastri. It comprises 25 representatives spanning 5 countries involved in the signing of the Accords, the USSR, the US, India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. 


As we want to further the two rivals to a sustainable peace, especially after the destructive Indo-Pakistan war in 1965, we will discuss the Tashkent Accords, taking part in discourse that will eventually lead to the making or breaking of ties between the two countries. The commission takes place on the 17th of January, 1966, a mere week after the Tashkent Accords were signed, giving both India and Pakistan leeway to deliberate on the peace treaty, especially after the unfortunate passing of Prime Minister, Lal Bahadur Shastri.

Tensions between India and Pakistan are at an all time high, and it is up to the delegates to diffuse the tense situation. Although the USSR and the USA are still in the height of the cold war, they mutually agree that they need to tackle the tension present. Afghanistan, concerned about its own safety, has also joined the Indo-Pak commission as a response to the recent war, and it’s territorial proximity to it.

This commission also aims to discuss how the Tashkent Accords changes regarding the situation of Lal Bahadur Shastri’s death and whether it shall still be considered as a valid contract or not, with various fingers being pointed due discourse is a requisite for peace at these times.
