On November 14, 2017, Pakistan dropped its bid to have the Diamer-Bhasha Dam financed under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) framework. The current Chairman of Pakistan’s Water & Power Development Authority has claimed that the conditions stated by the Chinese for financing Diamer-Bhasha “were not doable and against our interests.” These conditions included the Chinese ownership of the project, including operation and maintenance, and the securitization of the Diamer-Bhasha project by pledging another operational dam.
