The US has welcomed building of the landmark Kartarpur Corridor between India and Pakistan to facilitate visa-free travel of Sikh pilgrims, saying the Trump administration is “incredibly supportive” of anything that increases people-to-people ties between the two neighbours.

“That was certainly a good news report, wasn’t it? We encourage it,” State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus told reporters at a news conference on Tuesday when asked about the corridor. “Anything that increases people-to-people ties between India and Pakistan is something that we’re incredibly supportive of,” she said.
