"Prime Minister Imran Khan says Pakistan is all set to open its doors for Sikhs from across the globe," read the tweet which also accompanied three pictures from the Pakistani side of the corridor.

Pakistan has also invited former prime minister of India Manmohan Singh to attend the opening ceremony of Kartarpur Corridor on the occasion of the 550th Birth Anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak.

In November last year, Prime Minister Imran Khan laid the foundation stone for the corridor, months after he assumed office after winning majority of seats in the parliament.
