Kartarpur Corridor Yet To Open Again: Ministry Of External Affairs

Reports have been coming in from Kartarpur corridor which was build last year connecting India to Kartarpur Saheb Gurudwara.

After a while it was closed now Ministry of External Affairs on Pak proposal to reopen Kartarpur Corridor have said that we remain in touch with all concerned authorities including Ministries of Home Affairs and Health and Family Welfare. 

Accorsing to MEA decision on re-opening of Kartarpur corridor would be taken in accordance with COVID protocol and easing of restrictions.

Ministry of External Affairs has said that at the time of opening of the Kartarpur Corridor last year and in the bilateral agreement signed in October 2019, it was decided that both sides shall establish requisite infrastructure including construction of a bridge at Budhi Ravi Channel.  

For the past one year hence, Pakistan is yet to construct the bridge while it is ready at our end. A technical meeting with Pakistan was also facilitated and two teams met on 27 Aug 2020. 

There is, however, no progress on part of Pakistan said spokesman of Ministry Of External Affairs.
