Gilgit-Baltistan: Pakistan Does’t Need NOC for Projects in GB

Posted on

ISLAMABAD (Nation): Pakistan rejected reports that India wants Pakistan to seek NOC for construction of water reservoirs in AJK and Gilgit-Baltistan including Diamer-Basha Dam.

“Pakistan doesn’t need any NOC from India regarding construction of dams,” Foreign Office spokesman Moazzam Ahmed Khan told the weekly press briefing.

Under the Indus Water Treaty, India was however under an obligation to inform Pakistan if it wanted to carry out any water-related project on rivers allocated for Pakistan, he said.
