India has warned Pakistan if it executed retired naval officer convicted of spying.

After growing by 14 percent, exports from Pakistan to India amounted to Dollars 286 million in the July-February period.

A military court in Pakistan had earlier this week found Jadhav guilty on two counts of espionage and sentenced him to death.

"India has declared Jadhav its son and is putting pressure on the Pakistani government for his release". The officials said that 30 Pakistani spies who are now undergoing trial in various cases have been provided with consular access whenever sought.

Asked about Jadhav possessing a fake passport under an assumed name, of Hussein Mubarak Patel, Baglay said that they had not seen the passport.

In its weekly news briefing in Islamabad, Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakariya said the "RAW agent" himself had confessed to his crimes and also admitted that he was a serving officer of the Indian Navy. He can file an appeal to the army chief within 60 days against the decision of the Appellate Court.

I will like to share details of some terrorist activities in which Kulbushan Jhadav was directly involved.

"They have denied our request for consular access 13 times (in the last one year)." he said.

Speaking on the death sentence awarded to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pakistan, he said, "New Delhi will ensure that the interests as well as lives of its citizens are protected anywhere in the world".

"Right from the day of Jadhav's arrest, India has been asking for consular access as we believe that Jadhav was "snatched" from Iran by Pakistani agencies in 2016".

Aziz said that a law qualified field officer was provided to defend Jadhav throughout the court proceedings.

Another newspaper, The Nation, said Jadhav's fate "is not set in stone" and asked India to discuss Jammu and Kashmir with Pakistan.

The foreign affairs adviser said that Kulbhushan Jadav was tried under the law of the land in a fully transparent manner.

Mr. Jadhav can file mercy petition to the President of Pakistan within 90 days if the army chief rejects the appeal for clemency.

Lawmakers from opposition Congress and other parties asked the government to put global pressure on Pakistan to free Jadhav and return him to India. VK Singh, minister of state in the ministry of external affairs, said: "If Kulbhushan Jadhav had a valid Indian visa, then how can he be a spy?"
