The US has imposed sanctions on Pakistan for refusing to take back its citizen deportees and visa over-stayers.

"Consular operations in Pakistan remain unchanged. This is a bilateral issue of ongoing discussion between the US and Pakistani governments and we are not going to get into the specifics at the time," a State Department spokesperson said on Friday.

Earlier, the US had warned that it may withhold immigrant and nonimmigrant visas of Pakistani citizens in accordance with its updated list of rules

The visa related sanctions are mentioned in the Federal Register notification updated earlier this week.

Pakistan is the latest in the list of nine other countries facing sanctions imposed by the Trump administration under the rule according to which countries refusing to take back deportees and visa over-stayers will be denied America visas. "Since the law was modified to cover nonimmigrant visas in 1996, 318 visa applicants have been affected, and sanctions have been imposed on 10 countries including Guyana (2001), The Gambia (2016), Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone (2017); Burma and Laos (2018); and Ghana and Pakistan (2019).

India's River Diversion Plan and South Asia's Waters

More dams are to come, as India’s need to power its economy means it is quietly spending billions on hydropower in Kashmir. The Senate report totted up 33 hydro projects in the border area with Pakistan. The state’s chief minister, Omar Abdullah, says dams will add an extra 3,000MW to the grid in the next eight years alone. Some analysts in Srinagar talk of over 60 dam projects, large and small, now on the books.
