Pakistan is not Responding to India’s Proposal on Kartarpur Corridor: Pakistan is incensed by the Modi government’s decision to remove Articles 370 and 35A (Articles 370 & 35A) from Jammu and Kashmir. Due to this resentment, Pakistan took several major decisions apart from breaking trade relations with India. After this decision, it was believed that Pak could take any step regarding Kartarpur Corridor, although so far it has not said anything on it.
Now it has been reported from the sources that India had proposed to hold technical level meetings in the first week of August for Pakistan to make arrangements and finalize the interim connectivity route of Kartarpur corridor.
These things are to be discussed
The meeting was also to discuss developing mechanisms to share information about the pilgrims between the nodal points. Also, a system was to be discussed to deal with the problems arising after the commencement of Kartarpur corridor. However, Pakistan has not yet given any reply regarding this meeting. He has also been issued a reminder by India.
