India on Saturday (March 9) made it clear for Pakistan that holding talks with Pakistan over Kartarpur corridor does not imply resumption of bilateral ties with Pakistan. Raveesh Kumar, the spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs, said
Kartarpur corridor talks are about respecting the religious sentiments of people believing in Sikhism. “I would like to make it clear that holding Kartarpur corridor talks doesn’t mean resumption of bilateral ties. This is related to the emotions and sentiments of our Indian citizens of Sikh faith,” Kumar told a press conference in New Delhi.
A delegation from Pakistan is scheduled to visit India on March 14 to discuss the draft agreement on the Kartarpur corridor. The talks are being held in the shadow of heightened tension between eh two countries following terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama on February 14. Forty CRPF jawans were killed in the incident.
