Pakistan regrets India to not grant visas to journalists: FO Spokesperson
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal regretted India’s decision to not grant visas to Pakistani journalists to cover Kartarpur meeting scheduled for tomorrow.
FO spokesperson took to Twitter and said, “More than 30 Indian journalists covered Kartarpur groundbreaking ceremony in Pakistan last year. They also met PM and were hosted by FM for a dinner during their stay.”
Pakistan and India will be exchanging delegations to discuss draft agreement of Kartarpur corridor between two countries.
Pakistani delegates would visit New Delhi on March 14 to discuss draft agreement on Kartarpur corridor, followed by return visit of Indian delegation to Islamabad on March 28.
Proposal to construct corridor providing visa-free access to Sikh pilgrims was renewed by Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa in August last 2018.
Pakistan would build the corridor from Indian border to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur while other part from Dera Baba Nanak in Indian Punjab’s Gurdaspur district up to the border will be constructed by India.
