India-Pak conclude water talks
Lahore, July 23: The Indus Water Treaty (IWT) commissioners of India and Pakistan, Aranga Nathan and Syed Jamaat Ali Shah, held their second round of talks here on Friday, DawnNews reported.
In today’s meeting, both sides agreed to jointly inspect the flood embankment of River Ravi. The commissioners had a five-point agenda for the meeting and discussed a formula for water-sharing, sources said.
Both sides emphasised on continuing dialogue in order to resolve issues.
Speaking to media representatives after the second round of talks, Aranga Nathan said the dialogue took place in a congenial atmosphere.
Earlier, during Thursday’s talks, Pakistan and India agreed in principle to put in place a telemetry system on the Indus to record and transfer real-time data for the benefit of both countries.
The agreement was reached on the first day of their two-day meeting after the Indians “conceded to the utility” of the telemetry system in removing the confusion over water flow.
