New Delhi: A 10-member Indian delegation today left for Pakistan to take part in the meeting of Permanent Indus Commission (PIC) beginning tomorrow in Islamabad.

The delegation comprises India’s Indus Water Commissioner P K Saxena, MEA officials and technical experts.

Speaking to PTI, a government source said India is “always open” to discuss and resolve concerns Pakistan have over its projects under Indus Water Treaty (IWT) bilaterally.

The source, however, reiterated that there will be “no compromise” on India exploiting its due rights under the 57-year-old pact.

However, the agenda for the meeting, taking place nearly six months after India decided to suspend talks on the pact in the wake of the Uri terror attack by Pakistan-based outfits, is yet to be finalised.
