To try to resolve the differences with Pakistan on the Kartarpur corridor: India

New Delhi : India will try to resolve differences with Pakistan on issues related to the Cartarpur corridor when the two sides hold talks on its implementation on July 14, the Foreign Ministry announced on Thursday.
“There are differences … We will try to resolve the differences at the meeting,” spokesman for Foreign Ministry Raveesh Kumar said during a briefing for the media.
The first meeting on the finalization of the modalities of the corridor was held on March 14 on the Indian side of the border of Attari-Wagah.
The meeting on July 14 will be held on the Pakistani side of the Wagah border.
Last month, India proposed Pakistan on July 11 and 14 to hold a new round of talks on the Kartarpur corridor. On Tuesday, Pakistan agreed to a dialogue on July 14th.
India has previously reported its strong concern to Pakistan over the presence of the leading Halistan separatist in the committee that has appointed Islamabad on the Kartarpur project.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a letter written in response to the congratulations of his Pakistani colleague Imran Khan after the Lok Sabhini poll, called for “early operation of the Kartarpur Corridor”.
In November 2018, Pakistan agreed to set up a border crossing linking Gurdwar Darbar Sahib to Kartarpur, the final resting place of the founder of Sikh Faith Guru Nanak, Deri Babi Nanak in the Gurdaspur district of Punjab.
Kartarpur is located in the Pakistani district of Narowal across the River Ravi, about 4 km from Dera Baba Nanak.
The technical experts of the two countries met on March 19 to discuss the alignment, the coordinates and several other engineering aspects of the proposed corridor. They also held a meeting on May 27th.
