"We consider this of the same importance as the Nankana Sahib Pakistan, the birth place of Guru Nanak Dev Ji."
Talking to the media before talks, Pakistani Foreign Office spokesperson Muhammad Faisal said Pakistan hopes for an expedited progress in this round of talks to finalize the agreement on Kartarpur, reported Radio Pakistan.
It was the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan, who had decided to open the border through the Kartarpur Corridor enabling Sikhs on the Indian side to visit Guru Nanak's shrine physically after 72 years.
According to the report, 90 per cent work on the Kartarpur Corridor, including the construction of the main road, bridge and buildings from zero line to Gurdwara Sahib has been completed by Pakistan.
In 2015, three heavily-armed terrorists wearing Army fatigues, had hijacked a car and stormed a police station in Dinanagar town of Gurdaspur district, killing seven persons before they were gunned down.
