Pakistan issues visas to Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife and mother

The recent release of the US National Security Strategy by President Donald Trump has put Islamabad on its guard

Foreign Office spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal said that Pakistan had made a decision to permit the meeting of the wife and mother of Jadhav with him purely on humanitarian grounds.

Addressing a news briefing here on Thursday, foreign office spokesperson Dr Mohammed Faisal said Jadhav still had pending mercy appeals so his execution was not on cards.

Islamabad last week said it was allowing the wife and mother of Mr. Jadhav - on death row in Pakistan for alleged espionage and terrorist activities - to meet him on humanitarian grounds.

Islamabad, Dec 21: he mother and wife of Kubhushan Jadhav would be having last meeting with him Monday, saying the Indian prisoner is under no threat of immediate execution.

The official said although the meeting was allowed by Pakistan on purely humanitarian grounds, the gesture will help initiate peace process with India. Jadhav has been in the Pakistani jail since April over allegations of being an Indian spy. "We await further details from India in this regard".

The Foreign Office sources said that adequate security measures will be taken for complete safety of Kulbhushan Jadhav's family.

The visas were granted by the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi for the pair to visit Islamabad. However, India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy. The two will travel to Pakistan to meet Jadhav on December 25. In its counter-memorial submitted to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Pakistan said the provision of such an access under the Vienna Convention is only for legitimate visitors and not for spies, a media report said.

Jadhav was arrested previous year in Balochistan province for spying and stoking terrorism and sectarianism in the country.
