Mamata Banerjee remembers martyrs of 1965 war

Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday remembered the soldiers killed in the 1965 India-Pakistan war — on the 52nd anniversary of the Tashkent Declaration that formally brought an end to the conflict.

“On this day in 1966, the Tashkent Declaration brought to an end the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965. Remembering the brave soldiers who gave their lives for the nation,” Banerjee tweeted.

The agreement between India and Pakistan was signed in Tashkent, then in the Soviet Union and now the Uzbekistan capital.
