Washington, May 20:  Pakistan Ambassador to the United States Aizaz Chaudhry, on May 19, said Pakistan will discuss the Kishanganga Dam issue with the World Bank (WB).

Chaudhry said the country intends to take up plans of Indus Waters Treaty or the Sindh Taas Agreement, Kishanganga Dam, and Rattle Hydroelectric Plant with WB chief Jim Yong Kim, as per Geo News.

This announcement came a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated Kishanganga hydropower project in Jammu and Kashmir.

The plant is built on Jhelum River which originates in India and flows into Pakistan.

The project, which started in 2009, was fast-tracked after India won a case in International Court of Arbitration in 2013. The ambassador further said that Pakistan holds reservations on Washington's decision to move the US Embassy in Israel.
