LAHORE: As Pakistan and India last week agreed to work expeditiously on opening of Kartarpur Corridor to facilitate the Sikh pilgrims to visit their holy sites on both sides of the border, technical experts from two countries are set to meet today at the proposed zero points to finalize the alignment.

Talks were held between the delegations of Pakistan and India at Attari Complex, Amritsar, last week which gave the two sides an opportunity to sort out modalities for the opening of the corridor between Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan and Gurdwara Baba Nanak in India for the upcoming 550th birth anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak in December this year.

Director General South Asia and SAARC Dr Faisal had led the Pakistani delegation, comprising high officials of Ministry of Religious Affairs, Ministry of Communications, National Engineering Services Pakistan (NESPAK) and Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Indian side was headed by Joint Secretary Ministry of Home Affairs SCL Das.

The next meeting between officials from the two countries is scheduled to be held at Wagah on April 2. This time an Indian delegation will visit Pakistan for the meeting.

Kartarpur is a small town in Narowal, some four kilometres from the Pakistan-India border, where the founder of Sikh religion Baba Guru Nanak spent the last 18 years of his life. Subsequently, Gurdwara Darbar Sahab was built at the site on the Pakistan side and Gurdwara Dera Baba Nanak in India
