After Pakistan warned India over unilateral revocation of the Indus Water Treaty, Indian Prime Minister Narendr Modi Friday said water that ‘belongs’ to India cannot be allowed to flow into Pakistan.

“The fields of our farmers must have adequate water. Water that belongs to India cannot be allowed to go to Pakistan… Government will do everything to give enough water to our farmers,” The Indian Express quoted Modi as saying.

“We formed a task force on Indus water treaty to ensure farmers of Punjab and other states get each drop of water due to them,” Modi told a farmers' convention in Bathinda, Punjab.

The World Bank-mediated Indus Water Treaty, signed in 1960 by President Ayun Khan and Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, is considered a success story of water diplomacy.

Under the treaty, water of six rivers - Beas, Ravi, Sutlej, Indus, Chenab and Jhelum - are to be shared between the two countries.

Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz had said in September the treaty was an international agreement and a joint document signed by Pakistan and India, which could only be revoked mutually rather than unilaterally.
