Pakistan’s leading jurist on international law, Makhdoom Ali Khan, who has been appointed by Pakistan’s supreme court as an ‘amicus curiae’ to assist the court on water-related issues, says Pakistan must consider working on a bilateral water-sharing agreement with Afghanistan. “Afghanistan is now planning to build 12 dams, in cooperation with the World Bank and India, the flow of water from River Kabul is expected to be affected to Pakistan’s detriment. In this regard, the government must consider working on a bilateral water-sharing agreement with Afghanistan that safeguards its interest as a lower riparian state,” Ali asserted.
