Pakistan, India sign deal on visa-free corridor for Sikh pilgrims

ISLAMABAD and New Delhi signed an agreement on a visa-free corridor between the two countries today that will allow Sikh pilgrims in India to visit the shrine to their religion’s founder, which is in Pakistan.

The Kartarpur Corridor deal – a rare example of co-operation between the nuclear-armed arch-rivals – follows months of heightened tensions, mainly over the disputed region of Kashmir.
