Pakistan to arrange meeting between Kulbhushan Jadhav and wife on 'humanitarian grounds'

"The Government of Pakistan has chose to arrange a meeting of Commander Kulbhushan Jhadev [sic] with his wife, in Pakistan, purely on humanitarian grounds".

"A Note Verbale to this effect has been sent to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, today", he said, adding that the meeting will take place on Pakistani soil.

The statement goes on to reiterate the allegations against Jhadav, saying he was apprehended by Pakistani agencies after he "illegally crossed over into Pakistan" and while he was "working with Indian Intelligence Agency/RAW".

The Pakistan Army said last month it is close to a decision on the mercy petition submitted by Jadhav.

On April 10 this year, a military court in Pakistan convicted Jadhav and sentenced him to death.

But, India moved to International Court of Justice and in major victory, the ICJ stayed Jadhav's death sentence in May this year.

Pakistan had so far denied consular access to Jadhav despite India's repeated requests stating that he is a spy.

India had requested a Pakistani visa for Jadhav's mother, Avantika, who wanted to meet her son in Pakistan. Jadhav, according to Pakistan, was arrested on March 3, 2016, in Balochistan's Mashkhel area, a claim rejected by India. In September, India presented its written pleadings, also known as memorials, at the ICJ as per its directive.

Pakistan had earlier said that Jadhav purportedly "confessed" to being a spy forRAW in a video release. This will be the first time Pakistan will grant access to the former officer.

India has appealed to the court to impose emergency measures for Jadhav's execution to be suspended until the legal battle in Hague concludes, while also accusing Pakistan of violating the Vienna Convention by failing to provide him with consular access and for being in breach of global human rights law.
