Second round of talks between Pakistan and India on Kartarpur Corridor is underway at Wagah Border in Lahore today (Sunday).
Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal leading the Pakistani delegation in talks expressed determination to complete the work on the project in the decided time.
Both the sides are discussing the draft agreement for finalizing the modalities of Kartarpur Corridor.
It is to be mentioned here that the first meeting on Kartarpur corridor was held on March 14.
Earlier, Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that eighty percent work on the Kartarpur Corridor has been completed. FO spokesman said that Pakistan is keen to welcome Sikh pilgrims at the Gurdwara in Kartarpur Sahib.
On November 28, Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan laid the foundation stone of Kartarpur Corridor. The ceremony was also attended by Indian ministers Navjot Singh Sidhu, Harsimrat Kaur Badal and Hardeep Singh Puri on the invitation of the Pakistan government.
The much-awaited corridor will connect Darbar Sahib in Pakistan’s Kartarpur – the final resting place of Sikh faith’s founder Guru Nanak Dev – with Dera Baba Nanak shrine in India’s Gurdaspur district and facilitate visa-free movement of Indian Sikh pilgrims, who will have to just obtain a permit to visit Kartarpur Sahib.
