"We want a civilised relationship with India", Khan said.

The State Department further said that "the normalization of relations between Pakistan and India is vital to both countries, and the region".

The proposal received a fresh impetus in August when Pakistan's army chief, Qamar Javed Bajwa, told Indian minister Navjot Singh Sidhu, who was in Pakistan to attend the oath taking ceremony of Khan, Islamabad would be willing to open the corridor. - AFP India's Punjab cabinet minister and former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu addresses the groundbreaking ceremony for the Kartarpur Corridor.

There was a need for "showing strength, will and determination" by the leadership of the two countries to resolve all issues, Khan said after the foundation ceremony and emphasised that both countries are nuclear armed and "only a foolish individual can think one can win a nuclear war".

However, Khan raked up the Kashmir issue saying that it was the only festering problem between the two countries and even that can be solved with "boldness and decisiveness" of political leadership.

The fenced crossing dubbed a "corridor of peace" will link Indian border city Dera Baba Nanak, to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, the final resting place of Sikhism's founder Guru Nanak in Pakistani Punjab.

Addressing a press conference in Hyderabad while campaigning ahead of the Telangana polls, Swaraj said: "See, bilateral dialogues and the Kartarpur corridor project are different things". They are traveling to Pakistan on an invite from the Pakistan Foreign Minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi to attend the ground-breaking ceremony of Kartarpur Corridor on November 28.

Moreover, denying the Sikh community an opportunity to mark Guru Nanak's 550's birth anniversary when Pakistan is ready to open the corridor would only alienate millions of Sikhs living in India.


Mr Kugelman said: "It's politically risky for the Indian government, particularly for a Hindu nationalist government like the current one, to extend an olive branch to Pakistan during the height of campaign season".

"Today, where India and Pakistan stand, it has been going on for the last 70 years".

Pakistan had extended an invitation to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to attend the groundbreaking ceremony but she expressed her inability for the same.

Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesman Mohammad Faisal had said on Tuesday that prime minister Modi will be invited to that country for the SAARC summit.

The Pakistan prime minister appreciated the joy on the faces around him. It was established in 1522 by Guru Nanak Dev who is believed to have spent 18 years here. ─ Photo courtesy Harsimrat Kaur Badal Twitter Indian Minister for Food Harsimrat Kaur prostrates herself on the soil in Kartarpur with the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in view. "That is the happiness I see here".

He said Pakistan and India can not understand the opportunities God has given to them. However, a short-lived thaw happened when Atal Behari Vajpayee, India's three-time Prime Minister, took a bus to Lahore in 1999 and hugged his Pakistani counterpart, Nawaz Sharif, leaving an endearing image that symbolized hope in bilateral ties. Yet, as I had argued before, India's Kartarpur misstep and Sidhu's antics have created the space for Pakistan this bluff.

Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu, who received the most applause, said it was unfair for pilgrims to have been prevented from visiting Kartarpur.
