LAHORE – Pakistan has completed ninety percent work on the Kartarpur corridor and is committed to open the corridor on the 550th birth anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak, the Foreign Office spokesman said on Wednesday.

Earlier today, FO Spokesman Dr Muhammad Faisal led the Pakistani delegation during the third round of talks between two South Asian neighbours on Kartarpur Corridor at Attari.

Later talking to the media persons, he said despite tension in relations, the meeting between the two sides remained positive.

He said the two sides have almost agreed to the draft agreement on the operationalization of Kartarpur Corridor except two or three points. He said most of the obstacles have been overcome and the Indian side will have to demonstrate political flexibility to address the remaining issues.

The spokesperson was confident that we are inching closer to the opening of Kartarpur Corridor by November.

Dr Muhammad Faisal said Pakistan has invited the Indian side for a final meeting on our side of the border to resolve the remaining sticking points.
