No progress in Indo-Pak talks on Tulbul
Indo-Pak dialogue on the Tulbul navigational project has once again ended in a deadlock with two sides agreeing for another round of secretary-level talks, reports Anil Anand.india Updated: Sep 02, 2007 04:28 IST
The two-day Indo-Pak dialogue on the Tulbul (Wullar) navigational project has once again ended in a deadlock. The two sides have agreed to another round of secretary-level talks, which could be held in six or seven months.
Both countries stuck to their positions on the description of the project. What is the Tulbul navigation project for India is the Wullar barrage for Pakistan.
Pakistan has been opposing the project on the Wullar lake in Kashmir on the grounds that the plan envisages construction of a barrage, which will lead to reduction in water levels downstream.
India’s stand is that the project involves regulating the water flow from Wullar to Jhelum.
