India and Pakistan to ink key agreement in a ceremony amid border tensions

NEW DELHI - India and Pakistan to ink key agreement on the Kartarpur Corridor in a ceremony amid border tensions in the coming days.

India has confirmed receiving the Kartarpur Corridor proposal by Pakistani side. The proposal was sent on Friday by the Pakistani government to the Indian High Commission.

The draft agreement mentioned that the exchange of lists of yatris will be done at least 10 days prior to them crossing over to Pakistan through the corridor with Islamabad and then the vetting of names will be done at least four days prior to these yatris coming to Pakistan through the corridor.

In case of the agreement of the draft, both sides are expected to sign at a ceremony which could take place at the Wagah–Attari border or at the Zero Point of Dera Baba Nanak.

Pakistan and India have held three rounds of formal talks on the Kartarpur corridor’s draft agreement while at least four times technical level experts have met to discuss the nitty-gritty of the project.
