ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s foreign office has said it will give India consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav, former navy commander, on August 2.

Pakistan’ foreign ministry spokesperson on Thursday announced its decision saying it is now waiting from a reply from the Indian side, media reports have said.

The decision to grant Indian officials consular access to Kulbhshan Jadhav comes almost a fortnight after Pakistan agreed to the demand.

Pakistan’s decision comes after the International Court of Justice (ICJ) slammed Pakistan for violation of the Vienna Convention.

In a statement on July 19, Pakistan’s foreign office said, “Pursuant to the decision of the ICJ, Commander Kulbushan Jadhav has been informed of his rights under Article 36, Paragraph 1(b) of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.”

“As a responsible state, Pakistan will grant consular access to Commander Kulbushan Jadhav according to Pakistani laws, for which modalities are being worked out,” the statement added.

Earlier, the International Court of Justice on July 18 suspended the death penalty awarded to Jadhav by Pakistan military court and added that Pakistan was violating the Vienna Convention by not granting India consular access to him. Further, the UN court had also directed Pakistan to review the death penalty awarded to Jadhav. (Agencies)
