ISLAMABAD: After weeks of deliberations, Pakistan has finally granted a permission to arrange a meeting between the self-confessed Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav with his wife and mother in Islamabad on December 25.
According to Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal, an Indian diplomat will also accompany Jadhav’s wife and mother during the meeting. The Indian officials have also been informed about the decision in this regard, added the spokesperson.
Pakistan recently granted permission to Jadhav to meet his wife, months after a request was made by India’s Ministry of External Affairs. However, Pakistan’s foreign ministry later confirmed that India had also requested to send Jadhav’s mother along with his wife.
The Narendra Modi-led Indian government had said that it was not ready to send just the wife of Jadhav, who is on death row in Pakistan, and also want his mother to accompany his wife.
Dr Muhammad Faisal continued that complete security would be provided to Jadhav’s wife and mother during their stay in Pakistan.
“Government of Pakistan has conveyed that they will give visa to the mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav”, India’s Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj said on Twitter.
Pakistan has agreed to facilitate the visit of mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav and assured us of their safety, security and freedom of movement in Pakistan. /5
