Pak threatens to move WB over Kishenganga project
New Delhi: Pakistan has issued a fresh threat to move the World Bank for arbitration over Kishenganga power project in Jammu and Kashmir, which it alleges violates the 1960 Indus Water Treaty.
Pakistan has issued the threat in a recent letter to India, the third such communication in last one year, official sources said.
In the letter, Pakistan has said the Indus Water Treaty, which governs sharing of six common river waters, is being violated by the Kishenganga project and it has the "right" to move the World Bank for arbitration, they said.
Pakistan`s fresh threat comes after several rounds of bilateral talks failed to end differences over the issue.
Under the Treaty, World Bank is an arbitrator in disputes between India and Pakistan over sharing of river water and it can be invoked by either country.
