He said the corridor will facilitate the Sikh pilgrims to visit their holiest sites in Pakistan.
While PM Imran Khan has said that the two countries need to learn from past mistakes and move forward, India has maintained that talks can not be restarted till Islamabad continues to harbour and support terrorists.
Sikh pilgrims will board a bus in India, get a special permit to visit Pakistan at the border terminal and be taken to Gurdwara Sahib via special transportation.
The comments came hours after Prime Minister Imran Khan, laid the foundation stone for Kartarpur border corridor that connects India's Gurdaspur district to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib located in Pakistan. "The moment Pakistan stops terrorist activities in India, bilateral dialogue can start". Khan also threw darts at Narendra Modi and suggested that Navjot Sidhu - the joker in the pack who can not tell a news conference from a stand-up comedy show - would make for a far better prime minister. "And I want a strong relationship with India", Khan while addressing a gathering said. It was established in 1522 by Guru Nanak Dev who is believed to have spent 18 years here. They can not get any closer because the border between Pakistan and India blocks their path. "But the dialogue is not connected to only the Kartarpur corridor", she said. "That is the happiness I see here".
If Pakistan can prove that it is India (and not a terror-exporting Pakistan) that is holding off the peace process, then it may be able to stave off some pressure and put some burden on India instead.
Punjab Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu courted a fresh controversy on Thursday, 29 November, after pro-Khalistan leader Gopal Chawla posted a picture with the Congress leader on Facebook.
"Unless and until Pakistan stops terrorist activities in India there will be no dialogue and we will not participate in SAARC", said Swaraj in a press conference organised in Hyderabad, India. It's important to underscore that the opening of the corridor is happening at a time when both countries are engaged in bitter mutual recriminations. Punjab Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu also attended the ceremony. The new government in Pakistan did set out all courtesies for the visiting Indian delegation and there was a possibility that the corridor would take shape even though details of the travel and stay of pilgrims could require more attention. Qureshi also condemned the violence in Kashmir and said that Pakistan always stood with people of Kashmir and would always stand by them. Among the tall claims made were efforts made to normalise relations with India only for a rather cold reciprocation from across the border.
India and Pakistan made some headway in improving their relations by announcing to jointly-construct a border crossing for millions of Indian Sikhs who have long desired to visit the shrine of Sikhism's founder, Guru Nanak, which is nestled in Kartarpur, in the Narowal district of Punjab, almost five kilometers away from Pakistan's eastern border.
Many in India construed this statement as Pakistan's desire for a change in Indian leadership. "I invite you to contest elections from Pakistan's Punjab and I know you will win not only from Punjab but also from any constituency of Pakistan", Prime Minister Khan said.
