Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday while addressing a press conference thanked Pakistan for opening of Kartarpur Corridor and made it clear that this initiative is not connected with the dialogue process with Pakistan.
“For many years the Indian Government had been asking for this (Kartarpur) corridor, only now Pakistan responded positively. It doesn’t mean the bilateral dialogue will start because of this, terror and talks can’t go together,” Swaraj said during a press conference in Hyderabad. “The moment Pakistan stops terrorist activities in India, the dialogue can start but the dialogue is not connected with only the Kartarpur corridor,” she said.

The ceremony was also being attended by an Indian delegation , ambassadors and Cricketer turned Indian politician Navjot Singh Sidhu.
