A ceasefire (or ceasefire) that has also concluded a ceasefire (the anonymity of “open fire” ) is the temporary end of a war in which each side agrees with the other side to suspend aggressive actions.  Historically, the concept existed at least in medieval times, when it was known as the “peace of God.”  Ceasefires may be declared as a humanitarian gesture provisionally, i.e. before a political agreement, or definitively, i.e. for the purpose of resolving a conflict.  Ceasefires can be declared as part of a formal treaty, but they have also been described as an informal agreement between opposing forces.  On 1 January 1949, a UNITED Nations-brokered ceasefire was concluded between India and Pakistan, ending the 1947 Indo-Pakistan War (also known as the 1947 Kashmir War). In October 1947, fighting broke out in Kashmir between the two newly independent countries, with India intervening on behalf of the princely ruler of Kashmir, who joined India, and Pakistan, which supported the rebels. Fighting was limited to Kashmir, but as India feared it would turn to a global international war, India referred the matter to the UN Security Council, in accordance with Article 35 of the UN Charter, which deals with situations “likely to threaten the maintenance of international peace.” The Security Council established the United Nations Special Commission for India and Pakistan, which acted as a mediator for a year during which the fighting continued. Following several UN resolutions establishing a referendum settlement procedure, a ceasefire agreement was reached in late December 1948 between the countries, which came into force last year. The Security Council has established the United Nations Military Observer Group on India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to monitor the ceasefire line.  In 2018, India declared a ceasefire in the Kashmir Valley during Ramadan.  Colletta, Nat.

On 3 March 1991, Iraq and the United Nations Security Council signed a ceasefire agreement after Iraq was driven out of Kuwait by US-led coalition forces during Operation Desert Storm.  Subsequently, in the 1990s, the United Nations Security Council adopted numerous resolutions calling on Iraq to disarm its weapons of mass destruction without conditions and without delay. As no peace treaty was signed after the Gulf War, the war remained in force, including an alleged attack on former US President George H. W. Bush by Iraqi agents during a visit to Kuwait;  Iraq was bombed in June 1993 in response, Iraqi troops fired on coalition aircraft patrolling Iraqi no-fly zones, US President Bill Clinton`s bombing of Baghdad in 1998 during Operation Desert Fox, and a previous US bombing of Iraq during Operation Desert Strike in 1996. The war remained in force until 2003, when American and British forces invaded Iraq and toppled Saddam Hussein`s regime from power.
