Treaty of Rawalpindi
The Treaty of Rawalpindi was signed on 8 August 1919 and changed on 22 November 1921. It was an agreement between the United Kingdom and Afghanistan in the Third Anglo-Afghan War. The UK said British India would not go past Khyber Pass. The changes in 1921 are sometimes called the Anglo-Afghan Treaty of 1921. Under this treaty Afghanistan, under the leadership of King Amanullah Khan, again recognized Durand line as international border between Afghanistan and British India.
