Kartarpur Corridor: India, Pakistan hold technical talks, discuss coordinates

NEW DELHI: India and Pakistan on Tuesday held a meeting of technical experts to discuss issues related to the Kartarpur corridor, including its alignment, coordinates, and other engineering aspects of the proposed crossing points, sources said.

The meeting comes days after the two countries held talks to finalize the modalities for the corridor linking Gurudwara Darbar Sahib in the Pakistani town of Kartarpur with the Gurdaspur district in Punjab.

The technical meeting at the level of experts, including engineers and surveyors, was held at “proposed zero points” in the follow up to the decision reached on the March 14 meeting, the sources said.

India has been seeking this meeting for long time and had even suggested to hold it on February 15, 2019. Pakistan, however, had linked it to the meeting on the draft agreement.

The experts discussed the alignment of the corridor, the coordinates, and the engineering aspects of the proposed crossing points, the sources said. (AGENCIES)
