China Welcomes Pakistan’s Initiative To Open Kartarpur Corridor

BEIJING: China has welcomed the opening of the landmark Kartarpur corridor and hoped that both India and Pakistan “can continue to show goodwill” to resolve their differences through dialogue.

The first batch of the Indian Sikh pilgrims entered Pakistan on Saturday using the historic corridor, which was thrown open ahead of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of the Sikh faith.

The corridor links Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan, the final resting place of Guru Nanak Dev, to Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Punjab’s Gurdaspur.

“We welcome such good interactions between India and Pakistan,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told the media here.
