Islamabad: Rattled over New Delhi contemplating to review Indus Water Treaty, Pakistan on Thursday warned of “appropriate action” if India violates it and said it is closely monitoring the situation, amid reports that New Delhi may revisit the key water sharing accord.
“Appropriate action will be taken in line with the Treaty in case of any violation by India,” Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said at the weekly briefing.
Pakistan was keeping a close eye on the situation, Radio Pakistan quoted him as saying.
Zakaria’s remarks come amid reports that India may review the 56-year-old Indus Water Treaty.
He said that India is making “desperate attempts” to divert attention from the “atrocities and human right violations” being committed in Kashmir.
He said Pakistan is highlighting Indian brutalities in Kashmir at world fora and there has been “very substantive outcome” of these efforts but the international community remains concerned about the situation.
Responding to a question, he claimed that India violated ceasefire on the Line of Control for more than 90 times this year.
The notion of isolating Pakistan is “ridiculous”, Zakaria said, adding that India’s “negative attitude” has been exposed which is the biggest hurdle in the way of regional development and prosperity.
