Pakistan, India to hold water talks on March 23 in Delhi
A delegation of Pakistani officials including Indus Water Commissioner Mehr Ali Shah and Foreign Office Spokesman Zahid Hafeez will attend the meeting in New Delhi. The previous session of talks was held in Lahore, two years ago.
Indus Water Commissioner Mehr Ali Shah has said that Pakistan’s delegation will attend the two-day session in New Delhi. “We stick by our stance with regard to four contentious Indian hydroelectric projects including Pakal Dul and Ratle power project,” Shah said.
The meeting will also review the objections to two new Indian hydropower projects – 19MW Darbak and 24MW Naimu Challing.
