ISLAMABAD

Pakistan has decided to approach International Court of Arbitration (ICA) due to non cooperation from India in connection with Kishanganga dam and Ratlay hydropower projects.

As per private TV channel Pakistani authorities talks which were held in several sessions with India on Kishanganga dam and Ratlay hydropower projects have not proved result oriented and India kept on refusing to accept Pakistan right. Therefore, Indus Water Commissioner has decided to suspend talks. In this respect Pakistan will inform Indian government through a letter in details at government level. A letter will be written to World Bank to take the matter to ICA.

Indus Water Commissioner Mirza Asif Beg while talking to media said talks are underway with India on 5 different issues at present. However conversation on Kishanganga dam and Ratlay hydropower project could not reach any conclusion. Therefore, Pakistan has decided to move to neutral experts.

Full fledged efforts were employed to sort out these issues at commission level but we could not succeed due to non cooperation from India and its non serious attitude. Letter will soon be written to World Bank in this connection, he added.
