Pakistan confident ICJ will reject India's claim for Jadhav's 'acquittal or release'

Pakistan-US tension not beyond control FO

While Pakistan claims that Jadhav was arrested by security forces from Balochistan province on March 3 previous year after he reportedly entered from Iran, the Indian side maintains he was kidnapped from Iran where he developed business after retiring from the Navy.

Thus sending Jadhav inside Pakistan by giving him a false identity on espionage and funding of terrorists activities were some of the reasons which disentitled India from invoking jurisdiction of ICJ, Pakistan argued.

Jadhav, an on-duty officer for the Indian Navy, confessed to his crimes in a recorded video statement televised by the army previous year following his arrest.

Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court in April on charges of espionage.

India submitted irs arguments in the case to ICJ on September 13 and Pakistan was directed to file its reply on Dec 13.

Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa ratified the sentencing by the army tribunal. The dossier contained Jadhav's confessional statement and related documents and evidence of the Indian interference in Balochistan. Video evidence of an Indian Navy submarine sneaking into Pakistani waters on November 18, 2016 was also part of the dossier.

Elaborating on Pakistan's stance over the issue during the OIC summit, he said, Pakistan, along with member OIC states, urged the United States to rescind the decision in view of its potential repercussions in the region. Islamabad ahas said that the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav substantiates India's continued involvement in subversion and sabotage in Pakistan.

In reply to another question, he said China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was the flagship project of Chinese Belt and Road Initiative.

Another famous RAW agent Sarabjit Singh (also known as Manjit Singh) was convicted of terrorism and spying by the Pakistan Supreme Court for a series of bomb attacks that had killed 14 people in Lahore and Faisalabad during 1990.

The spokesperson said we have received response from India regarding visit of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife and they will come to Pakistan and will have a meeting with him on 25th of this month.

Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal on Thursday said ungoverned areas in Afghanistan not only posed threat to stability of Afghanistan but security of the whole region as well.

The Foreign Office sources said that adequate security measures will be taken for complete safety of Jadhavs family.
