Recently, India suggested the coordinates for a crossing point to Pakistan. The  Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar informed media saying, “From the Pakistan side, we have received a response where they have suggested an alternate border crossing point”.

The officials from India and Pakistan will take up the issue of the different coordinates for the crossing point at a meeting in New Delhi to be held on March 14. “The Indian side is hopeful there will be an agreement on the matter”, Kumar said.

Indian spokesperson emphasised saying, “We had also proposed that we will hold technical-level discussions (among) engineers and this shouldn’t be held hostage to the main meeting which will take place on March 14. We still await a response from the Pakistani side on this.”

Earlier, India and Pakistan decided to schedule the first meeting of officials to finalise the Kartarpur corridor on March 13. And a follow-up meeting was also scheduled in Pakistan.

Both India-Pakistan revealed plans last November to build the corridor to facilitate visits without visas by Indian pilgrims to the gurdwara. They have also informed about their plan to open the corridor on the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak in November 2019.
