Director General South Asia and SAARC Dr Muhammad Faisal is leading the Pakistani delegation, which also comprises members of a technical team that will hold a meeting on the sidelines. The delegation left for India via the Wagah border.

The experts will discuss issues relating to the corridor, its construction, road, and other technicalities.

The proposal to construct the corridor providing visa-free access to Sikh pilgrims was renewed by Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa in August last 2018.

The opening of Kartarpur corridor is a longstanding demand of the Sikhs community and Prime Minister Imran Khan’s initiative is reflective of the importance that Pakistan gives to all its minorities.

Pakistan has already sent the draft agreement of Kartarpur corridor to India.
