    Background: India and Pakistan early on Monday (July 3) signed an agreement to renounce the use of force in settling disputes. The agreement -- reached after five days of talks in the Indian hill town of Simla -- also pledged both sides to work for a friendly and harmonious relationship between them. This is official film from Pakistan on the signing.

    SYNOPSIS: The meeting between President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was a milestone in relations between Pakistan and india. But it was only in the final hours of the talks -- which lasted five days -- that an agreement became possible.

    The six point agreement pledged both nations to put aside force as a means of solving their disputes, and to work for the promotion of a friendly and harmonious relationship and a durable peace on the sub-continent.

    But the agreement left open the important issue of the 93-thousand Pakistani prisoners of war held by India since the war between the two nations in December.

    Further talks are to be held between representatives of both sides.
