Amidst the tensions raised by the revoking of Article 370, Pakistan says they will continue working on the proposed Kartapur corridor. The Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Thursday said that the work will continue on Pakistan’s side.

This response comes after Pakistan on Wednesday decided to downgrade its diplomatic relations with India and suspend bilateral trade with India, after the Narendra Modi government scrapped Article 370, Article 35A and bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories (UTs).

As part of their downgrading process, the Pakistan government had earlier expelled Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria, and further decided not to Pakistan High Commissioner-designate to India.

Pakistan also has partially closed its airspace hours and increased the minimum limit of the altitude of flights.
