Pakistan has invited External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj as well as Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh for the opening ceremony of Kartarpur Sahib corridor.
The issue was confirmed by Foreign Minister of Pakistan Shah Mahmood Qureshi, who broke the news on Twitter.
He wrote, “On behalf of Pakistan I have extended an invitation to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj @SushmaSwaraj ,Capt Amarinder Singh @capt_amarinder & Navjot Singh Sidhu @sherryontopp to attend the groundbreaking ceremony at #Kartarpura on 28 Nov, 2018.”
This comes as Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi also welcomed that the Kartarpur corridor would act as a bridge between the peoples of India and Pakistan.
He added that this might lead to a better future as he referred to the fall of the Berlin Wall to underline the importance of people-to-people contact.
Earlier Pakistan PM Imran Khan invited former Indian cricketer to visit Pakistan to attend the ground-breaking ceremony of Kartarpur border corridor with India on November 28.
A long-pending demand of the Sikh community to build a religious corridor linking India’s border district of Gurdaspur with a historic gurudwara in Pakistan may finally be fulfilled with both the countries announcing that stretches would be developed in their respective areas.
