Pakistan, India talks on Indus Waters Treaty resume
March 17, 2017

PESHAWAR, 17 March: The negotiations process between Pakistan and India on Indus Waters Treaty (IWT), which was stalled for the last six months, has been resumed.

The Indus Water Commissioner-level talks between the two countries will be held in Lahore on 21-22 March. India is constructing dams on Neelum and Chenab rivers besides other projects to which Pakistan has reservations. Pakistan had approached the World Bank for resolution of the issues pertaining to violation of the IWT which had sought some time in this regard.

Negotiations between the two counties on water issues were suspended in September last year after a militant attack in Uri area of Indian Held Kashmir (IHK) which India blamed on militants based in Pakistan.
