Kulbhushan Jadhav not given consular access: FO

Kulbushan Jhadav

Couple of FO officials will also be present during the meeting, and it may last for 30 minutes.

"I requested a meeting with my wife and mother and I am thankful to Govt of Pakistan for this grand gesture", Jadhav, who appeared to be reading a script in front of him, said in the video. The Pakistan foreign office spokesperson reiterated that the meeting does not mean any change in Pakistan's stance regarding Jadhav.

Pakistani officials insist Jadhav has confessed before the country's military court that he was tasked by the Indian intelligence agency "to plan, coordinate and organize espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities" against Pakistan.

In his petition to the army, Jadhav wrote that he was "ashamed" over his involvement in terrorism inside Pakistan.

Jadhav was sentenced to death by Islamabad in April, on charges of espionage. "Pakistan mere completed a formality by arranging the meeting in such a manner", he said.

Cuban Leader Raúl Castro Will Stay In Power Past February
Cuban President Raul Castro will remain in office until April, the country's government announced on Thursday . The date of the elections was pushed back due to the devastation that Hurricane Irma had on Cuba in September.

In June 2017, India had dismissed as "farcical" Pakistan releasing a fresh "confessional video" of Jadhav and had said that "manufactured facts" could not alter the reality in the case. Jadhav's family arrived at the MoFA from the Indian High Commission where they stayed for more than half an hour.

Faisal said Pakistan had hoped to make the family members available to media but that India objected, insisting journalists be barred from speaking to them.

India's Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh, who was supposed to accompany Jadhav's mother and wife to Islamabad, will not be allowed to meet him.

Pakistan, which turned the meeting into a media spectacle in a desperate bid to improve its image on the global arena, could not find courage to allow Kulbhushan to meet his family in private or even touch or hug each other.

However, New Delhi has been maintaining that Jadhav, a retired Navy officer, was kidnapped from Iran where he had some business interest. The ICJ halted his execution on India's appeal pending the final verdict by it.
