India and Pakistan on Tuesday, held a meeting to discuss the outstanding technical issues pertaining to the construction of Kartarpur corridor, according to government sources.

The meeting comes after India postponed the second round of talks on corridor after reports surfaced about the appointment of "controversial elements" by Pakistan in a committee associated with the corridor.

The two countries were previously slated to meet on April 2, in Pakistan for the second round of talks.

Despite the postponement, India offered to hold a technical meeting to discuss other aspects, according to India's Ministry of External Affair Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar.

Local media has claimed that Pakistan has completed more than 50 per cent of the construction work of the corridor.

The first round of talks between the two sides was held at Attari in Punjab on March 14, during which issues like finalisation of the draft agreement between the two countries were discussed. (ANI)
