Pakistan, India Indus water talks fail to yield any results: reports

LAHORE: Pakistan and India held third round of talks on Tuesday at Nespak Headquarters in Lahore and discussed the disputed issues under the 1960 Indus Waters Treaty but talks failed to yield any results, the media reports said.

Following the failure of the talks, Pakistan will now take its case to the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

In the talks, the Pakistani side was headed by the Indus Waters Treaty Commissioner Asif Baig Mirza while the 10-member Indian delegation was led by K Vohra.

The media reports said that talks failed after India failed to budge on its design of the Kishanganga Dam. The reports said that India also refused to halt construction of dams on the Chenab River.

“Pakistan has expressed serious concerns over construction of Kishanganga Dam and termed it a clear violation by India of the Indus Waters Treaty (IWT). Four other proposed dams by India on the Chenab are also be in violation of the treaty,” Mirza said in statement on Monday.

Pakistan has also raised objections to the diversion of Chenab water by India by constructing hydropower projects, including the 690 MW Ratli Dam, 1,000 MW Pikkal Dam, 1,190 MW Karthai Dam and 600 MW Kero Dam. It has termed “a clear violation of the treaty”.

“We have also raised objections over design of the Kishanganga Dam that may reduce the required water discharges to Pakistan and it will be a violation of the IWT,” Mirza said, adding the Indian officials had also been urged to change the dam’s design.
