India-Pakistan Relations: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday admitted that Islamabad has 'violated' the agreement with India signed by him and former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 1999. He said this in an apparent reference to the attack carried out by General Pervez Musharraf in Kargil. Addressing the party's general council after being elected president of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Sharif said, "On May 28, 1998, Pakistan conducted five nuclear tests. After that Vajpayee Saheb came here and made a compromise with us. But, we violated that agreement. It was our mistake.

Kargil war happened due to Pakistani infiltration 

Let us tell you that Nawaz Sharif and Vajpayee signed the Lahore Agreement here on February 21, 1999. The agreement, which talked about the vision of peace and stability between the two countries, signaled a major success, but a few months later, Pakistani infiltration in the Kargil district of Jammu and Kashmir led to the Kargil War.

Nawaz Sharif said these things

As Pakistan celebrated the 26th anniversary of nuclear testing, Sharif said, "President Bill Clinton had offered five billion US dollars to stop Pakistan from conducting nuclear tests but I refused. If a person like (former Prime Minister) Imran Khan had been in my seat, he would have accepted Clinton's offer.
