Minister of State for External Affairs V K Singh said that the Pakistan is constructing six dams on the Indus river in PoK with China’s assistance. He said that he has issued demarches to both Islamabad and Beijing over the constructions stating that it is in violation of India’s jurisdiction and territorial probity as India has a clear and consistent position that these territories are illegally occupied by Pakistan. He added that the government will continue to maintain this position.

Meanwhile, the World Bank had said on 1 August, that discussions between Pakistan and India over Kishanganga and Rattle hydroelectric power plants are ongoing and no decision has been made yet. “The meetings earlier this week were held in a spirit of goodwill and cooperation. The parties have agreed to continue discussions and reconvene in September in Washington, DC,” the World Bank had said in a statement.

The World Bank also described as “erroneous” on the outcomes of the Indus Waters Treaty meetings. Pakistan had approached the World Bank last year, raising concerns over the designs of two hydroelectricity projects located in Jammu and Kashmir. It had demanded that the World Bank, which is the mediator between the two countries under the 57-year-old water distribution pact, set up a court of arbitration to look into its concerns. On the other hand, India had asked for the appointment of a neutral expert to look into the issues.
