World Bank ‘options’ for resolving Kishenganga, Ratle deadlock

NEW DELHI: The World Bank today suggested some “options” for resolving the deadlock between India and Pakistan over Kishenganga and Ratle projects, which come under the Indus Water Treaty.

The “options” were suggested by CEO Kristalina Georgieva during a meeting with senior Government officials here.

However, officials refused to divulge details, saying these will be first discussed by higher authorities in the Government before being made public.

World Bank representative Ian Solomon, who had visited the national capital on January 5 to discuss ways forward in the matter, was also present at the 30-minute meeting, which was attended by External Affairs Ministry and Water Resources Ministry officials.

“We listened to her (Georgieva) during the meeting. India’s position continues to be the same on the issue. So, she suggested us some options to find a way forward. (AGENCIES)
