High level team arrives today
Srinagar, June 16: Amid elaborate security arrangements, a high level delegation comprising 10 members each of Court of Arbitration, India and Pakistan arrive here on a four-day visit on Friday.
Official sources said that the 30-member delegation is scheduled to carryout inspection of 330 MW Kishanganga hydropower and storage project built in Bandipora district in north Kashmir from June 18.
Kishanganga hydropower project is being built on Kishanganga river, which flows into Pakistan, and was objected by Islamabad claiming that the project violates Indus Water Treaty (IWT) reached between the two countries.
Pakistan had sued India in the International Arbitration Court accusing the latter of gross violation of the Indus Water Treaty of 1960, brokered by the World Bank to settle water disputes between the countries.
As per Pakistan, India holds back waters flow to the country at her will. The Islamabad says that New Delhi leverages to strangulate agro-industrial lifeline in the country. As far as India is concerned, the project is likely to completed in February, 2014.
