Yesterday, Pakistan issued visas to the convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife and mother to facilitate their meeting with the death-row inmate in Pakistan - most likely on December 25.

Addressing the media at the Foreign Office here, he said, "Pakistan chose to permit the meeting of the wife of Commander Jadhav with him purely on humanitarian grounds". Pakistan has offered a visa for Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife and mother on humanitarian grounds and at New Delhi's request.

Faisal earlier had tweeted, "Visa applications of mother and wife of Commander Jadhav received for their visit on humanitarian grounds".

On Pakistan Army chief, Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa's reported advice to the country's lawmakers to work for improving ties with India, the spokesperson said New Delhi too desired good ties with all its neighbours, including Pakistan.




Faisal said, "The Indian side subsequently also requested that the mother may accompany the wife".

The meeting between Jadhav and his family will take place at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

According to details, Jadhav 's family will come to Pakistan along with Singh. India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy. India rejects Pakistan's claim that Jadhav was arrested on March 3, 2016, from Balochistan's Mashkhel area. 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. A Pakistani military court, which tried Jadhav on espionage and terror charges in Pakistan, sentenced him to death in April this year.
