Pakistan, India officials meet to talk Sikh border crossing

LAHORE, Pakistan — Pakistani and Indian officials are meeting to finalize a draft agreement for the opening of a border crossing to allow Sikh pilgrims from India to cross easily into Pakistan and visit shrine there.

The meeting Wednesday on Indian side of the land border at the town of Wagah-Attari is taking place despite increasing tensions between Pakistan and India over disputed Kashmir region.

Pakistan wants to open this corridor in November. The two sides plan to give special permits instead of issuing visas to Sikh devotees to enable them visit the shrine of Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan's Narowal border district.

Anti-India sentiment has run high in Pakistan since New Delhi last month revoked Kashmir's special status. Kashmir is split between India and Pakistan but claimed by both in its entirety.
