Islamabad, Nov 8: Pakistan has warned India with reprisals if New Delhi breaches the World Bank-sponsored Indus Waters Treaty, the media reported on Tuesday. “India will be responded (to) if it shows aggression by unilaterally breaking the treaty,” the Express News quoted Water and Power Secretary Younis Dagha as saying on Monday. Dagha was addressing the Sete Standing Committee on Water and Power. The Committee met to reconsider a report regarding an adjournment motion moved in the upper house of Parliament by Setor Sherry Rehman. Rehman moved the motion in the backdrop of reported Indian threats to unilaterally revoke the treat. The Pakistan People’s Party setor had sought details about the possible repercussions of the move and Pakistan’s preparedness to combat such “a war-like situation”. “If India shows aggression, then there are some other options,” he added.
