Pakistan Foreign Office strongly react over Indian consular baseless allegations over RAW agent Kulbhushan Jhadav
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Foreign Office strongly react over Indian consular baseless allegations over RAW agent Kulbhushan Jhadav.
Foreign Office spokesperson Aisha Farooqui on Sunday said that Pakistan rejects the "baseless and inaccurate" allegations by Harish Salve, India's legal counsel in the Kulbushan Jadhav case.
In an online lecture link on May 3, Salve, who had represented India in the case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), alleged that Pakistan refused to respond to Indian queries about how it would carry out the ICJ's judgement link and review and reconsider Jadav's case.
"We have written four to five letters to Pakistan [...] but they just keep on denying. I think we have reached a point where we have to now decide whether we want to go back to ICJ for consequential directions because Pakistan has not moved ahead," *Tribune India* quoted link Salve as saying.
He also alleged that Pakistan granted consular access to Jadhav "too late" and refused to share details of the case with India.
The Foreign Office, while refuting the allegations, said that Pakistan has "fully complied" with the international court's judgement. "Pakistan has granted India consular access to commander Jadhav and is processing measures for effective review and reconsideration as per the guidelines provided by ICJ in its judgment," a statement from the FO read.
The Foreign Office also said that Salve's statements were "regrettable and a misrepresentation of facts", adding that Pakistan followed "all its international obligations".
