Pakistani delegation leaves for India to hold Kartarpur Corridor talks
Islamabad: Pakistan and India are set to hold talks today to finalize an agreement on the Kartarpur Corridor project.

Pakistani delegation led by Director General South Asia and SAARC Dr. Mohammad Faisal left for India via Wahga border.

The talks would be held at the Wagah-Attari border on the Indian side.

On the other hand, the Indian delegation will visit Pakistan for Kartarpur talks on March 28.

Pakistan has already sent the draft agreement of Kartarpur Corridor to India.

Speaking to the media before leaving, the Foreign Office Spokesperson Faisal said that in line with Pakistan’s sincere efforts to de-escalate the situation for regional peace and stability, they agreed to the Indian proposal and were meeting today. He said Pakistan hopes that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s initiative will not only facilitate Sikhs in India, but will be a step to change animosity and enmity to friendship.


In November, the Prime Minister Imran Khan formally performed the groundbreaking of the corridor that once completed would connect two Sikh holy sites, Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur in Pakistan and Dera Baba Nanak in India.
