WASHINGTON: United States Department of State Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus, in a recent press briefing, welcomed the initiative of the Kartarpur Corridor between Pakistan and India for facilitating Sikh pilgrims.
Ortagus, while responding to a journalist who asked U.S. comments on the Kartarpur Corridor between Pakistan and India, stated that it ‘was certainly a good news report’.
She added anything that increases people-to-people interaction between Pakistan and India “is something the US incredibly supports.”
She mentioned that Prime Minister Imran Khan has been scheduled to visit the White House, and talks in detail would be held with him.
During the routine press briefing, a female Afghan journalist asked a question against Pakistan, but left the conference hall upon getting an unpleased reply from the spokesperson.
She added that the U.S. was the country that took action against the military leadership in Burma, and Myanmar’s army chief and four other generals had played a role in the massacre of Muslims in Rohingya. The U.S. has banned their entry into the country.
