ISLAMABAD -In a Breakthrough, Pakistan and India to sign historic agreement.
India and Pakistan are scheduled to sign the agreement on Kartarpur corridor on October 24 (Thursday). Earlier on Monday, the External Affairs Ministry (EAM) had said in a statement that India would sign the Kartarpur Sahib Corridor agreement with Pakistan on October 23.
The EAM had also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre wants to finalise the agreement on October 23 in order to operationalise the Kartarpur corridor before November 12 in view of the demand of pilgrims to have visa-free access to Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan.
“While agreeing to sign the agreement, the Government of Pakistan has been once again urged to reconsider its insistence to levy service fee of $20 on pilgrims. India would be ready to amend the Agreement accordingly at any time,” the MEA had said.
