ISLAMABAD, Oct 20 - Pakistan today warned of �appropriate action� if India violates the Indus Water Treaty and said it is closely monitoring the situation, amid reports that New Delhi may revisit the key water-sharing accord.

�Appropriate action will be taken in line with the Treaty in case of any violation by India,� Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said at the weekly briefing.

Pakistan was keeping a close eye on the situation, Radio Pakistan quoted him as saying.

Zakaria�s remarks come amid reports that India may review the 56-year-old Treaty.

He said that India is making �desperate attempts� to divert attention from the �atrocities and human right violations� being committed in Kashmir.

He said Pakistan is highlighting Indian brutalities in Kashmir at world fora and there has been �very substantive outcome� of these efforts but the international community remains concerned about the situation.

Responding to a question, he claimed that India violated ceasefire on the Line of Control for more than 90 times this year.

The notion of isolating Pakistan is �ridiculous�, Zakaria said, adding that India�s �negative attitude� has been exposed which is the biggest hurdle in the way of regional development and prosperity. � PTI
