 Print media: China agrees to resume the Yarlung Zangbo River water data


Chinas willingness to share hydrological data is crucial for India, especially in the northeastern part of India. Flood forecasting can be carried out in this area prone to natural disasters. Reported that Swaraj participated in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Conference, will launch a 4 day visit to China. She met with Chinese State Councilor and foreign minister Wang Yi, and discussed a series of bilateral issues and ways to enhance high-level interaction to improve bilateral relations. We also discussed the importance of strengthening the contacts between the two peoples so as to bring closer ties between the two countries, she said.

According to the agreement, the flood season data of the Yarlung Zangbo River will be provided to the Indian side during the period from 5 15 to 10 15 per year. At the news conference after the Wang Yi talks, he expressed his appreciation for the willingness of China to share the hydrological information of the Yarlung Zangbo River and the Soviet trinet River in 2018, which is directly related to the local residents. Zang Mu Hydropower Station Last month, officials from the India Ministry of water resources and Chinese officials held talks on cross-border River cooperation in Hangzhou, the report said. This is the first relevant meeting since the suspension of hydrological data in Beijing last year, the report said. The Global Times reported that there was an analysis that Indias demand for the water data of the Yarlung Zangbo River was urgent, not only about flood control, but also because it wanted to gather relevant data to understand the progress of infrastructure projects in Tibet. Why did China suspend hydrologic data in September last year? In September 12, 2017, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Geng Shuang said that the hydrological stations in China did not have the conditions for collecting hydrological data because of the technical reasons such as the reconstruction of the flood damage in 2016 and the upgrading and upgrading. Geng Shuang said at the time that whether to provide hydrological data again depends on the progress of the above work. At the same time, he said that India was clear about these reasons. However, since the Chinese suspension of hydrological data last year coincided with the end of the Dong Lang confrontation event, India public opinion distorted this as a retaliatory action by the Chinese side. According to the observers network, India has been worried about Chinas construction of water conservancy facilities in the upper Yarlung Zangbo River for many years. The dam built in China is a strategic weapon for years, and the upstream or flood discharge will cause great disaster to the lower reaches. In particular, after 2014 built the first hydropower station in the Yarlung Zangbo River, Zangmu Hydropower Station, the worries of India reached its peak. At that time, a large number of media in India suggested that China might use the water storage function of the power station dam to fight the ecological war on India, and even think that China can make debris flow. However, China has never publicly threatened India with water resources. Instead, it has been seeking an understanding with India on this issue.
