China agrees to restart sharing of Brahmaputra hydrological data

China agrees to restart sharing of Brahmaputra hydrological data
Beijing: China said on Wednesday that it will resume sharing with India hydrological data on the Brahmaputra river as top water resource officials of the two countries wrapped up two-day talks, the first since last year Beijing stopped providing the data crucial to predict floods. On the basis of humanitarian spirit and our shared will to develop bilateral ties, we will continue with the cooperation on hydrological information cooperation," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a media briefing here.
He was responding to a question whether China will resume sharing of the hydrological data on Brahmaputra river which Beijing suspended last year stating that it could not share it with India due to upgrade of the data collection station in Tibet. China's announcement to not share the data came soon after the 73-day long stand-off between Indian and Chinese troops at Dokalam over Chinese military's plans to build a road close to India's Chicken Neck corridor connecting North-Eastern states.
