HEADLINE PAKISTAN

DELHI – Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday said the Kartarpur corridor initiative is not connected with the dialogue process with Pakistan, hours before the groundbreaking of the corridor in Pakistan’s Narowal district.

Addressing a press conference earlier today, the minister thanked Pakistan for accepting India’s longstanding demand for opening of the Kartarpur corridor, but clarified that it does not mean that bilateral talks will begin soon.

Prime Minister Imran Khan is set to lay the foundation of the corridor which connects Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur area of Pakistan’s Narowal with Dera Baba Nanak in India’s Gurdaspur District later today
