Scared and worried by India’s decision to review the Indus Waters Treaty, Pakistan on Tuesday has threatened to petition the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
The Advisor to Pakistan Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said that Islamabad will approach the International Court of Justice if India violates the Indus Water Treaty.
“According to international law India can’t unilaterally separate itself from the treaty,” Aziz said while addressing the National Assembly
Aziz that the treaty was not suspended even during the Kargil and the Siachen wars.
On Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with officials to review provisions of the Indus Water Treaty with Pakistan.
This development comes as the relations between India and Pakistan have hit a new low following the Uri attack in Kashmir in which 18 Indian soldiers were killed.
