Pakistan has made it clear that it will not accept any modifications or changes to Indus Water Treaty.
In an interview in Washington, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Tariq Fatemi said Pakistan's position is based on the principles enshrined in the treaty. He said the treaty must be honored in letter and spirit.
