The FO spokesperson spoke to journalists at the Islamabad airport before departing for Lahore to attending the groundbreaking ceremony of the Karturpur corridor and said, "Today is a historic day and this is an important step by Prime Minister Imran Khan for the inclusion and rights of minorities". "For me, this is an emotional moment, which has come through because of the prayers, millions like me have been saying for 70 years way before I was even born", she said. "He was just talking about peace and brotherhood", he said. It was after this visit that the issue of the Kartarpur Corridor had come into focus.

"Hopefully we will not have to wait for Sidhu to become prime minister for relations to improve between the two countries and before that, Indian leadership will take positive steps", Khan said. He then said that if Sidhu decides to contest elections from Pakistan's Punjab, he will win. Speaking about cricket and politics, he said players who fear losing never succeed, unlike those who dream of winning. He said there had been enough bad blood and that the corridor would be a major opportunity to open the doors of the hearts of the people. Khan said while addressing the gathering.

Swaraj added: "But that doesn't mean that bilateral dialogue will start". Following the fallout, Nepal, as the current chair of Saarc, had urged all member states to create a conducive environment for 19th Saarc summit in line with the spirit of the Saarc charter.
