The government on Monday said that it had agreed to New Delhi’s proposal for a technical meeting regarding Kartarpur Corridor on April 16.
“Continuing with Pakistan’s spirit of constructive engagement, we have agreed to the Indian proposal for a technical meeting on 16 April,” Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal tweeted.
His tweet was as follows,
While announcing its decision to postpone the meeting, New Delhi had said it had “sought clarifications from Pakistan on key proposals put forward by India at the last meeting held in Attari to discuss the modalities of the Kartarpur Sahib Corridor”.
India had also proposed in its statement that the infrastructure development for the corridor should go forward and “in an expeditious manner.”
Pakistan, in a statement, had regretted India’s decision, saying: “Last minute postponement without seeking views from Pakistan and especially after the productive technical meeting on March 19 is incomprehensible.”
Pakistan’s friendly gesture is meant to facilitate the Indian Sikh community to visit the sacred place where their spiritual leader lived for 18 years until his death in 1539. But the question to ponder is ‘Is India just “Pretending” to hold so-called-friendly-talks because it concerns there Sikh religious matter or does this peace-talks extend to other political matters as well? I think we know the answer to it.
