India Supports World Bank Decision on Indus Treaty, says it is fully conscious of its International Obligations

It was “legally untenable” according to India

New Delhi, Dec 13, 2016: World Bank’s decision to temporarily bring an end to the two simultaneous processes of looking into Indo-Pak dispute over Kishenganga and Ratle project confirms that pursuing the two concurrent processes could have rendered the Indus Water Treaty unworkable over time.

Vikas Swarup, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson said India remains fully conscious of its international obligations and is ready to engage in further consultations on the matter of resolving current differences regarding these two projects, mentioned PTI.

“The government had pointed out on 10 November, 2016 the legal untenability of the World Bank launching two simultaneous processes– for appointment of a Neutral Expert as requested by India and establishment of a Court of Arbitration requested by Pakistan- to adjudicate technical differences between India and Pakistan on Kishenganga and Ralte projects”.

Swarup mentions “by temporarily halting both the processes now, the Bank has confirmed that pursuing the two concurrent processes can render the Treaty unworkable over time.”

India questioned the legality surrounding the simultaneous ongoing of the two separate mechanisms. It was an “inexplicable” decision. It was “legally untenable” according to India. This prompted The World Bank to halt the process, nearly after a month of objection.
