Pak expects to resume talks on Kartarpur after elections in India

Pakistan expects to resume talks with India to finalise the agreement on the Kartarpur Corridor once the new government takes charge in New Delhi, according to a Pakistani media report.

The Kartarpur Corridor links Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan’s Narowal with Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Gurdaspur district in Punjab. The corridor, once operational, will provide a visa-free access to Sikhs from India to their holiest shrine located inside Pakistan.

Pakistan expected the resumption of talks on the Kartarpur Corridor once the new government took charge in India, official sources were quoted as saying by the Express Tribune on Sunday. The last phase of the six-week-long general election in India is scheduled to take place on May 19 and the result would be announced on May 23.

A senior Pakistani official said there was no delay on Pakistan’s part. “It is India that is not willing to engage at this juncture,” the official said.
