Pakistan once again shows that it wants peace in South Asia: Fawad Ch
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry said that Pakistan once again has shown that it wants peace in South Asia.
In his tweet, he said: “Pakistan through its conduct has once again showed who stands for peace in South Asia and which force is not sincere.”
The minister said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has clearly shown Pakistan stands for peace.
“The Kartarpur border opening is history in the making and history will judge those who stood on wrong side,” he maintained.
Earlier, Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj and Indian Punjab Chief Minister Amrinder Singh have also refused to attend the groundbreaking ceremony of the Kartarpur corridor.
In a rare positive development in Pakistan-India ties, New Delhi had accepted an offer by Islamabad about building a new border crossing and road connecting their respective Punjab provinces, making it easier for Indian Sikh pilgrims to visit a religious site in Pakistan.
The corridor will connect Dera Baba Nanak in Indian Punjab’s Gurdaspur to Kartarpur in Pakistan’s Narowal district where the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib the shrine of revered saint Baba Guru Nanak is situated.
