Islamabad: Pakistan made an official offer to grant consular access to Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, said Foreign Office Spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal on Thursday.
The move comes after the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on July 17 had allowed India consular access to Jadhav and called Pakistan, by the means of its own choosing, to effectively review and reconsider the conviction and sentence.
The Pakistan Foreign Office spokesman, in his briefing on Thursday, said that it is awaiting India’s response in this regard.
In its decision last month, the ICJ found that India’s submission pertaining to the acquittal and release of Kulbhushan Jadhav could not be upheld.
An Indian Navy officer working for Indian covert agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), Commander Jadhav was arrested on March 3, 2016, from Balochistan after he entered into Pakistan from Iran. He was tried in a military court that sentenced him to death for espionage and subversive activities.
