Talks with Pakistan over Kartarpur corridor today, India plans to close gaps in pact
Islamabad : India will be holding a meeting with Pakistan officials at Attari border on Thursday to close certain gap over Kartarpur corridor, a report said.
This will be the third time when senior officials will be holding meetings to discuss operation and maintenance of Kartarpur corridor in Punjab.
“We had shared our suggestions with regard to various provisions of the joint draft agreement arrived at after the second round of talks at Wagah in Pakistan on July 14,” Hindustan Times quoted a person who didn't wish to be named.
"We look forward to closing the gaps with the view to early finalisation of the agreement on the Kartarpur corridor," the person added.
In the meeting, the officials will be discussing the progress made in building the infrastructure related to the corridor.
India had earlier proposed dates in the first week of September to finalise the agreement on the Kartarpur corridor in time for the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak in November.
The corridor is meant to facilitate visa-free movement of Indian pilgrims, who will have to obtain a permit to visit Darbar Sahib, built at the spot where Guru Nanak, the founder of the Sikh religion, spent the last years of his life.
