ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Minister for Foreign Affairs Khawaja Muhammad Asif has on Tuesday said that Pakistan is fulfilling its share of responsibility with respect to Indus Water Treaty.

Addressing a seminar titled “Indus Water Treaty: Issues and Recommendations’ organized by Institute of Strategic Studies in Islamabad on Tuesday, he said that India is involved in belligerence on water issue as it has been designing many water resources.

The minister said that any unilateral plans by India aimed at modifying the terms of the Treaty will not be acceptable to Pakistan.

Asif said that Pakistan has conveyed its reservations regarding construction of hydro electric and storage projects by India.

“World Bank must play its due constructive role to resolve the issue as India has deliberately delayed the resolution,” he said.
