The Foreign Office has said despite India’s August 5 move to strip occupied Kashmir of its special status, Islamabad would continue the process of opening of Kartarpur Corridor and in this regard a meeting between Pakistani and Indian officials will be held on August 30 (today).
“India has concurred to Pakistan’s proposal of holding the next technical meeting on the corridor on August 30 (today) at the Zero Point designated area of the border,” said the Foreign Office spokesman Dr Muhammad Faisal at a weekly press briefing on Thursday.
“Pakistan remains committed to complete and inaugurate its side of the Kartarpur Corridor as planned and announced by Prime Minister Imran Khan,” the spokesperson added.
Kartarpur Corridor is being built between Indian and Pakistan to allow Sikh pilgrims visit one of their holiest sites, Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, associated with the founder of Sikh religion, Baba Guru Nanak Devji. The Gurdwara is located inside Pakistan in Punjab’s Narowal district.
