Indo-Pak talks on Kartarpur corridor shows progress
Islamabad : India and Pakistan on Tuesday reported progress in the construction of infrastructure facilities for Indian Sikh pilgrims looking to visit a shrine in Pakistan’s Narowal district, reports said.
Officials of India and Pakistan held talks on the infrastructure to be put in place for the opening of the
Kartarpur corridor despite New Delhi having called off a round of discussions due on 2 April that would have discussed the numbers of pilgrims to cross into Pakistan each day and the papers required to cross into Pakistan where the Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara is situated, Live Mint reported.
Tuesday’s meeting took place in Punjab’s Gurdaspur district. “Project implementation is progressing on the ground with speed,” officials were quoted as saying.
The Kartarpur Corridor is expected to open in time to commemorate the 550th birth anniversary of
Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism, in November.
