10-member Indian delegation leaves for Pak
A 10-member Indian delegation today left for Pakistan to take part in the meeting of Permanent Indus Commission beginning in Islamabad tomorrow. The delegation comprises India’s Indus Water Commissioner PK Saxena, officials of the Ministry of External Affairs and technical experts. The meeting is taking place nearly six months after India decided to suspend talks on the pact in the wake of the Uri terror attack by Pakistan based outfits.
A government official said India is always open to discuss and resolve concerns Pakistan have over its projects under Indus Water Treaty (IWT) bilaterally. But there will be no compromise on India exploiting its due rights under the 57-year-old pact.
