India rejects Pak's claim of using water as 'weapon of war' amid Kashmir turmoil 20.8.2019
New Delhi/Islamabad: Accusing India of waging "fifth-generation warfare", Pakistan said on Monday that New Delhi had failed to inform it about the release of water from a dam that could cause flooding across the border. India, however, rejected the claim saying that under the terms of a water treaty between the two nations it had informed Pakistan about the release of excess water late on Monday when it crossed a certain threshold. Relations between the neighbours, already hostile, have been further strained after India revoked the special status of the Jammu and Kashmir region. Pakistan reacted with fury, cutting transport and trade links and expelling India's ambassador in retaliation. Islamabad said the unexpected release of water into the River Sutlej that flows from India to Pakistan was part of an attempt by New Delhi to flout the longstanding treaty between the countries. "They try to isolate diplomatically, they try to strangulate economically, they're trying to strangulate ...
