Responding to media queries regarding the decision announced by the Court of Arbitration in The Hague, today, the Spokesperson said:

“The Government of Pakistan is in receipt of the Award of the Court of Arbitration, addressing its competence and the way forward on the disputes between Pakistan and India concerning the Kishenganga and Ratle Hydroelectric Projects; and, wider questions of the interpretation and application of the Indus Waters Treaty.

The Court has upheld its competence and determined that it will now move forward to address the issues in dispute.

The Indus Waters Treaty is a foundational agreement between Pakistan and India on water sharing. Pakistan remains fully committed to the Treaty’s implementation, including its dispute settlement mechanism. We hope that India would also implement the Treaty in good faith”.
