1(4) [the Bonn Agreement]). The Korean War is an example of a conflict that was ended by a ceasefire and not a peace agreement with the Korean ceasefire agreement. But this war is never technically over, because there has never been a definitive peace treaty or final settlement.  Peace agreements are treaties that aim to end a violent conflict or significantly modify a conflict so that it can be dealt with in a more constructive manner. There are different types of agreements that can be reached during a peace process. Each type of agreement has its own purpose and serves in itself to give a positive impetus to a final settlement. However, these agreements are not easy to distinguish, as content can sometimes overlap. Not all types of agreements are necessary for each conflict. Some processes can lead to progressive agreements leading to a comprehensive settlement. Other peace processes could try to negotiate an agreement in a comprehensive way. Peace treaties, while diverse, generally have a broad common goal: to outline the conditions for a lasting resolution of hostilities between two belligerents.
To this end, the provisions of the peace treaty generally deal with common issues. These include formal identification of borders, access and allocation of man-made natural resources, settlement of relevant debts, recognition of refugees, future dispute resolution procedures and identification of relevant practices in accordance with treaty provisions.
