World Bank assures to resolve Kishanganga, Rattle dams issues: FO

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesman Dr Muhammad Faisal on Friday said the World Bank had assured Pakistan that it would make utmost efforts to resolve the Kishanganga and Rattle dams issues within the parameters of Indus Basin Treaty.

“Pakistan has effectively been raising the issue of Kishanganga project to resolve it according to the dispute resolution mechanism available in the Indus Water Treaty (IWT),” he said at his weekly news briefing in Islamabad.

He said water issues could lead to a very dangerous situation; hence, it was necessary to resolve such problems according to the IWT spirit.

The spokesman said that Pakistan believed that inauguration of Kishanganga dam by India without resolution of the disputes was violation of the treaty.
