    LAHORE: Pakistan may approach the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for arbitration if India continues with its stance of constructing the Kishanganga Dam on River Jhelum and four other dams on the Chenab in violation of the Indus Water Treaty (IWT), Dawn learnt on Monday.

    A 10-member Indian delegation is here on a three-day visit to discuss the issue but so far no headway has been made in the talks.

    “We have raised serious objections to the designs of the Kishanganga Dam at the Neelum distribution point of River Jhelum and four other projects on River Chenab. Since our objections are logical, we are trying hard to persuade the Indian team to accept these in the light of the IWT.

    “And if the Indian side continues sticking to its stance, we will have no option but to go for arbitration by the ICJ,” Pakistan’s Indus Water Commissioner Mirza Asif Baig said.

    Sharing details of the second day’s meeting, he said the Indian team led by its Indus Water Commissioner K. Vohra tried to justify its stance about designs of the hydropower projects.

    The Pakistani side presented its stance and objections to the Indian projects. “Since both the countries stuck to their stances, the issues remained unresolved,” Mr Baig said.

    He said if Indian team continued sticking to its stance even on Tuesday, Pakistan would not wait for years to get its concerns redressed through more and more talks.

    “For going to the ICJ, we will have to complete the procedure through the ministries of water and power, foreign affairs, law and defence,” the commissioner said.

    He said it was a general policy of the government to go to the ICJ in case of failure of such talks because Pakistan had a strong and logical case.

    Haven't they had enough. They lost Baglihar complaint. Then they lost Neelam River - Kishanganga river dam case. How much more they wish to make life miserable for judges in the ICJ with one useless complaint after another.

    I think they are living in a fools paradise, and by the way wasn't the Kishanganga project contested in hauge ? and there was some favorable results to India's stance.

    India is stealing the electricity from the water before sending to Pakistan. There is no power or potency in the water so Pakistani men are becoming impotent. It is a conspiracy to destroy Pakistan

    India should build a couple more dams there. This idiot coward Pakis constantly kill innocent Jawans and now they are making a huge issue out of this water resource. One has to learn the art of hypocrisy from pakistan.

    Inconclusive talks: India rejects plea for change in Kishanganga design – The Express Tribune

    The third round of talks between water experts from Pakistan and India hit an impasse on Tuesday when India refused to accept Pakistan’s demands to change the design of Kishanganga dam.
    An Indian delegation – led by Indus Water Commissioner (India), K Vohra – arrived in Lahore to discuss the controversial water issues between both countries that have remain unresolved for several decades.
    The delegation will return to India on August 28. Furthermore, it is likely that another round of talks will be held between the two delegations.
    During Tuesday’s session, Pakistan raised objections to the design of Kishanganga dam and four other projects.
    Pakistan’s Indus Water Commissioner, Mirza Asif Baig, informed the media that the talks were ineffective as both sides had failed to reach an agreement. He added that after the third round of talks ended on an inconclusive note, a dialogue report has been submitted to the government.
    Asif Baig expressed dissatisfaction with the limited degree of progress made during the talks and said he was not sure when this dispute would be resolved.
    A final session of talks will be held in September and October. Pakistan, according to Baig, will not allow India to put off the matter any further and a decision would be made in the final session,
    After the second round of talks had failed on Monday, water experts from Pakistan had threatened to appeal to the International Court of Justice (ICJ). Baig insists that the ICJ would be in a better position to arbitrate on the issue and broker a deal. However, he is waiting for the final session of talks to end.
