Pakistan rules out immediate execution of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav

Jadhav's mother and wife will meet him in Islamabad

I suggest they should not be taken seriously, " External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said at a media briefing.

The visas for Jadav's wife and mother to visit Islamabad were granted by the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi. A diplomat from the Indian High Commission in Islamabad will be allowed to accompany the visitors.

Faisal earlier had tweeted, "Visa applications of mother and wife of Commander Jadhav received for their visit on humanitarian grounds". India rejected the allegations that Jadhav had any connection with RAW. After denying repeated requests from New Delhi for consular access to Jadhav, Islamabad had informed the Indian high commission here last month that it would allow him to meet his wife and mother on humanitarian grounds.

Foreign Office spokesperson, Dr Mohammad Faisal said on Thursday that due to Pakistan's effective and successful diplomacy, the Heart of Asia (HoA)-IP members had agreed to drop the selected list of proscribed groups from the Baku Declaration. However, India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy. "We await further details from India in this regard". The two will travel to Pakistan to meet Jadhav on December 25.

Jadhav was arrested in Pakistan's Balochistan Province over charges of alleged involvement in espionage and subversive activities for India's intelligence agency - the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). Pakistan is ready to permit media interaction with the wife and mother of Commander Jadhav. Pakistan earlier this week filed a counter-memorial in the ICJ. The execution was, however, halted by the International Court of Justice on India's appeal.
