The World Bank has made the appointments that it was required to make in the two distinct processes requested by India and Pakistan. In relation to the Kishenganga and Ratle hydroelectric power facilities, in accordance with its obligations under the Indus Water Treaty.

The nominations were made as a result of a disagreement between the two nations. Regarding whether the technical design elements of these two hydroelectric projects violated the Treaty.

India requested the appointment of a Neutral Expert to address similar issues about the two hydroelectric power projects. While Pakistan urged the World Bank to enable the establishment of a Court of Arbitration. To address its reservations about the designs of the two projects.

Furthermore, Professor Sean Murphy has been named as the Court of Arbitration’s Chairman. And Michel Lino has been named as the Neutral Expert.

They will fulfill their obligations in their respective capacities as subject-matter experts. And apart from any other positions they might presently hold.
The World Bank continues to share the parties’ worries that running the two processes simultaneously presents both practical and legal difficulties. The lender has faith that the highly competent experts chosen to serve as Neutral Experts. And as members of the Court of Arbitration will exercise their jurisdictional authority in a fair and careful manner, as permitted by the Treaty.
