India and Pakistan will hold a second round of talks regarding Kartarpur corridor on Tuesday.

In the meeting, officials from both the neighbouring countries are expected to discuss technical aspects regarding the construction of the corridor, including fencing, road, and maps.

The meeting comes days after India postponed the second round of talks on corridor after reports surfaced about the appointment of ‘controversial elements’ by Pakistan in a committee associated with the corridor.

However, India offered to hold a technical meeting to discuss other aspects, according to India’s Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar.

Kumar had said earlier that India had sought certain clarifications from Pakistan on several unaddressed issues regarding the corridor, including the number of pilgrims that can visit daily, issues of visas, etc.

The two countries were previously slated to meet on April 2 in Pakistan for the second round of talks. The first round of talks between the two sides was held at Attari in Punjab on March 14 during which issues like finalisation of the draft agreement between the two countries were discussed.
