Pakistan to resume talks with World Bank on India water dispute

ISLAMABAD: A high-level delegation from Pakistan left for the United States on Sunday for meetings with World Bank officials on the Indus Waters Treaty and disputes with India.
As per reports, the delegation led by Indus Water Commissioner Syed Mehr Ali Shah will press for measures for the complete implementation of the 1960 treaty.
The Pakistani side will be in the US for five days and will also take up its demand for the establishment of a Court of Arbitration to address concerns over the designs of India’s two hydroelectric power projects – Kishanganga and Ratle.
India has asked the World Bank to appoint a neutral expert for the same purpose. (tribune.com.pk)
