KARTARPUR A SINCERE EFFORT, NOT A GOOGLY, SAYS IMRAN
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday appeared to distance himself from foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s remarks that the Kartarpur corridor was a “googly”, saying it was a “sincere effort” to improve relations with India.

Qureshi had angered external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and food processing minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal by saying that Khan, a former cricketer, had bowled a “googly” that ensured India’s presence at groundbreaking ceremony for the corridor in Pakistan.

Asked to comment on the issue during a meeting with TV anchors and reporters, Khan said Pakistan is sincere about establishing better ties with India.

“The Kartarpur corridor was not a googly or a double game but a straightforward decision,” Khan was quoted as saying by Geo News
