ISLAMABAD: First hearing of dispute between Pakistan and India pursuant to Indus Waters Treaty began at Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, The Netherlands, said statement issued by Attorney General for Pakistan (AGP) Office.

AGP Office also took notice of news stories appearing in Indian press regarding India’s attempted unilateral modification of Indus Waters Treaty and said, “Such stories are misleading”. “Treaty cannot be unilaterally modified. This is an attempt to divert attention from ongoing proceedings at Permanent Court of Arbitration under Indus Waters Treaty.”

Statement elaborated that dispute pertains to concerns raised by Pakistan over India’s construction of 330MW Kishenganga hydroelectric project on River Jhelum and plans to construct the 850MW Ratle Hydroelectric Project on River Chenab in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
