ISLAMABAD: On Monday, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistan has decided to invite former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for the induction of the Kartarpur Corridor.

“We have decided after discussion that we want to invite former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh (to the Kartarpur induction),” FM Shah Mahmood said in a video message.

Shah Mahmood said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had special interest in the development. The minister, while mitigating the decision, said Sikhism was Singh’s religion and that he was a characteristic of the Sikh community.

FM Shah Mahmood said in the message, “As Foreign Minister of Pakistan, I am prolonging an invitation to former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to attend the induction ceremony.”
