Pakistan has said it will be allowing members of the Indian media to visit the country to observe the Kartarpur Corridor meeting.

The meeting was supposed to be held in Wagah on April 2 but has been postponed by India.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal announced this on Twitter on Friday. He said the journalists may apply to the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi for visas.

India had refused to grant Pakistani journalists visas for the March 14 meeting on the corridor in Attari.

A Foreign Office delegation, headed by Dr Faisal, attended the talks after which it was decided that the next series of talks would be held in Pakistan.

On November 28, 2018, Prime Minister Imran Khan laid the foundation stone for the Kartarpur Corridor, a 4km passage connecting Dera Baba Nanak in India to the Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan. It will provide Indian Sikh pilgrims visa-free access to the shrine. The corridor is expected to be opened in November.
