The comment came days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a meeting to review the Indus Water treaty with Pakistan amidst heightened tension between the two countries. National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar, the Water Resources Secretary, and senior PMO officials were present at the meeting.

While addressing the Pakistan media, Aziz said that according to international law India can’t unilaterally separate itself from treaty. If India violates treaty, Pakistan can approach International Court of Justice.

Referring to Kargil and the Siachen wars, Sartaj Aziz said that the treaty (Indus Waters Treaty) was not suspended even during these two wars.
