India to 'stop' flow of its share of water to Pak from rivers under Indus Treaty, reiterates Gadkari
India cannot stop the flow of water into Pakistan under the Indus Waters Treaty, a top Pakistani officials said Monday, asserting that Islamabad will move the International Court for Arbitration if New Delhi halts the water from the Ravi, Sutlej and Beas rivers.
Pakistan responded to his remarks, saying it was not concerned over India's plan to stop the flow of its share of water.
"The Ministry of Water and Power is reviewing India's move to stop water from flowing into Pakistan. As per the Indus Water Treaty, India cannot stop water from flowing into Pakistan and if they do so then we will move the International Court for Arbitration," Geo News reported, quoting an official as saying.
It will take India several years to change the direction of the water to keep it from flowing into Pakistan, the official said.
