ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday has said that not one side of the two bound by Indus Water Treaty could unilaterally detach with the agreement and that Pakistan would continue to render complete support to Kashmiris victimized by Indian coercive instruments.
The premier presided over a meeting in the federal capital today which was attended by the Chief of Army Staff, General Raheel Sharif among some of the other key representatives of different institutions concerned with defense and security affairs.

In his address, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that the government would never tolerate violence on Kashmiris and that both civil and military leaders were in agreement of pushing a befitting response against India in case of any aggression.
The premier cleared that Pakistan considered regional peace before devising its policies and strategies which was why Indian government might be wrongly taking state’s patience as a weakness.
Participants of the meeting expressed satisfaction over Pakistan Army’s capabilities to oust Indian strategies.
The meeting observed that the World Bank was a guarantor in the Indus Water Treaty and hoped that the organisation would play its role to solve the issue after Indian premier, Narendra Modi was taking bullying to different fronts.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s statement over Indian water-bullying has come in after Modi’s meeting to review the pact sparked a debate highlighting possibility of cut to water supply to Pakistan as another desperate move to retaliate to Pakistan’s equivocal stance over Kashmir in United Nations General Assembly this month.
Sartaj Aziz, Advisor to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs and National Security also responded to the issue on Tuesday after a call attention notice was moved by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in National Assembly.
Aziz stated in his speech to the lawmakers that India was not legally authorized to independently back out of the understanding.
