Pakistan disputed a report in the Indian media citing independent Swiss experts arbitrating the Baglihar Dam issue conclusion that upheld Indian position as “misleading” and accused that the “honour code of confidentiality” has been broken. She did not provide additional information substantiating their claim and also refused to discuss the matter in public.
The two nations had disagree the use of the dam across the Chenab in Doda and the construction of a dam by India that would facilitate water-based transportation, irrigate areas, and provide drinking water. Pakistan cries foul that India may use water as a weapon in case of conflict and also demands that they need the extra water for its Punjab province and that it violated the 1960 Indus Water Treaty.
The two nations agreed to an independent non-partisan arbitration by the UN. The final conclusion of the expert is expected by year-end.
