外文标题：Brahmaputra dam won’t hurt India’s northeast, Beijing says
BEIJING: China on Monday promised to take "full account" of concerns about its new hydropower dam on the Brahmaputra in the river's downstream areas, which include India's northeastern region. The dam will not come in the way of flood-prevention efforts undertaken in the downstream areas, it said.
On Sunday China had announced the completion of the first phase of construction on the 500MW Zangmu hydroelectricity dam on the Brahmaputra, in its Tibetan region across the Indian border. This is one of the five dams China has planned on the river, which is called Yarlung Zangbo in Tibet.
"We'll take full account of concerns of downstream areas," Hua Chunying, foreign ministry spokeswoman said. "The hydropower stations that China has built will not affect flood prevention and ecological systems of downstream areas."

India should do instead of talking as this dam is evidently a weapon of war. Where iss the 56 inch chhati. We have to soon build a bigger dam of our own if we are to prevent a repeat of Kashmir 2014 when Pakistan just released waters to flash flood the Indian side. It has already been said, the next world war will be over water, the most precious resource.

There is no use crying, unless we are in a position to restrain China, which we are not.

There is Nothing that China says can be taken for its word value. This Dam will be used against India one day of China's choosing.
