During the inauguration of Kartarpur corridor in Pakistan, the country’s prime minister Imran Khan raised the issue of Kashmir.
It is this mention that caused India to react sharply.
India said that the mention “unwarranted” and that he chose to politicise the pious occasion.
India also reiterated that Jammu and Kashmir is an inalienable part of India.
“It is deeply regrettable that the Prime Minister of Pakistan chose to politicise the pious occasion meant to realise the long pending demand of the Sikh community to develop Kartarpur corridor by making unwarranted reference to Jammu and Kashmir which is an integral and inalienable part of India.
“Pakistan is reminded that it must fulfil its international obligations and take effective and credible action to stop providing shelter and all kind of support to cross-border terrorism from territories under its control,” the spokesperson for the External Affairs Ministry said in response to queries on the issue.>
