On August 12, 1947, J-K entered into a status quo agreement with India and Pakistan and stated: „Jammu and the Government of Kashmir would welcome a status quo agreement with the Indian Union/Pakistan on all matters on which there are agreements with the outgoing government of British India.“ With regard to the loss of Gilgit-Baltistan, Snedden Sardar Ibrahim accepts the argument that Azad Kashmir`s physical ties to Gilgit-Baltistan are weak. It was expected that Pakistan would manage it more easily via Peshawar or Rawalpindi.  However, in the years that followed, Azad Kaschmir tried to regain control of Gilgit-Baltistan through various means. In 1972, the Azad Kashmir Legislative Assembly passed a resolution on the recovery of Gilgit-Baltistan. The intermediate constitution of Azad Kashmir, formulated in 1974, lists gilgit-Baltistan as part of Azad Kashmir. In 1992, the Azad Kashmir High Court admitted a petition and ordered that the government of Azad Kashmir take control of Gilgit-Baltistan. However, the order was challenged in the Supreme Court of Azad Kashmir, which overturned it, although he claimed that gilgit-Baltistan was part of Jammu and Kashmir.  The people of Gilgit-Baltistan would have been outraged by the Karachi agreement because there were no representatives of them who thought that the agreement was the fate of Gilgit-Baltistan.  The agreement was apparently kept as a secret document until the 1990s. It has not been reported in the press articles of 1949, the memoirs of Sardar Ibrahim or other sources. It was first revealed in the gilgit and Baltistan judgment (northern zone) by the Azad Kashmir High Court in the 1990s, which says the agreement „appears to have been executed on April 28, 1949.“ Later, it was published in 2008 by Judge Syed Manzoor Hussain Gilani as Annex XVII of the Constitution of Azad Jammu – Kashmir.   The first part of the agreement concerned the structure and operation of the „civil administration of the Azad-cashmere territory“, which set the rules applicable to the government of Azad Kashmir. The second part dealt with financial arrangements that would allow Pakistan to present money.
