ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Friday said Pakistan will soon open the Kartarpur border crossing particularly for its Sikh pilgrims.

In a statement, the minister said the Pakistani government was looking forward to hold talks with India for peace, but the latter didn’t give positive response to Islamabad’s peace overture.

Fawad said the military leadership backs the government’s desire to hold talks. Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa realised that Pakistan can not make progress alone, he added.

He associated the country’s well-being with the development of the region, saying if there will be no peace in the region, every country will suffer.

Earlier, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshis had said that Pakistan and India have no other option but to resolve all long overdue issues including the core issue of Kashmir through dialogue.

“The PM in his first address had told India that if they take one step, we will take two and we have signalled positively towards India,” Qureshi stated.

The foreign minister, however, added that “one can’t clap with one hand” and India too should move for fruitful dialogue.
