Pakistan responds over Indian media reports of invitation to Indian PM Modi for Kartarpur corridor inauguration

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan responds over Indian media reports of invitation to Indian PM Modi for Kartarpur corridor inauguration.

Pakistan yesterday said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had not been invited to the Kartarpur corridor inauguration next month.

Speaking at a weekly news briefing here, Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammed Faisal said that only former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had been invited to the opening ceremony.

To a question regarding Prime Minister Imran Khan’s proposal for a mediatory role between Iran and the United States, he said that US President Donald Trump had requested Prime Minister Khan to help in mediating a solution between the US and Iran.

“PM Imran Khan supports a negotiated and amicable solution to the US-Iran stand-off. Pakistan will continue to urge all sides to resolve issues through dialogue,” he added.

Faisal said that Pakistan wanted a pacific settlement of the Afghan dispute and the Taliban agreed in principle. “I cannot share any further details,” he added.
