Kulbhushan Jadhav thanks Pakistan for "grand gesture"

Kulbhushan Jadhav thanks Pakistan for

Kulbhushan Jadhav, retired Indian navy commander was allowed to meet his family after Indian appealed against Pakistan's verdict for him in an global court of justice.

Speaking to PTI over phone, Kaur said Pakistan had pre- planned everything. "So to that degree, it is a step forward". "There are no evidences against him", he added.

Tharoor stressed: "I think that was emotional but especially painful for them, since the man is officially been sentenced to death". "It has nothing to do with consular access", he added.

"But there was no consular access". A consular access means that an official consular can ask you questions and see how you are being treated and give a report back to the Headquarters. The official spoke on condition of anonymity.

He asserted that the main concern was the way Jadhav looked.

Terming the meeting a "PR stunt by Pakistan", the news anchor maintains Pakistani authorities were "trying to show there was nobody else in the room" while keeping a close watch through CCTV.

He further said both the countries relation is at an all time low, which means that India can not hope for anything better than what has been offered so far.

It was the first time that Jadhav was meeting his family since his arrest in March, and Pakistan portrayed it as a humanitarian gesture to mark the birthday of the country's founder Mohammed Ali Jinnah. At least we know he is alive and is in a reasonable shape.

Donald Trump: Russia dossier a 'Crooked Hillary pile of garbage'
Trump appeared amazed that the dossier was used to accuse his campaign of colluding with Russian Federation . Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 23, 2017Wow, "FBI lawyer James Baker reassigned", according to @FoxNews .

He added: "I requested meeting my wife on humanitarian ground and I have been informed that my mother and wife are going to meet me today".

The remarks by the FO came after Jadhav was allowed to meet his mother and wife earlier in the day.

India feels today's meeting between Kulbhushan Jadhav and his family was as much an image-building exercise as a tacit message from Pakistan to New Delhi, and so represents a "major climbdown".

JP Singh, India's Deputy High Commissioner to Pakistan, can also be seen standing around the meeting spot.

Pakistan Rangers, Anti-Terrorism Squads (ATS) and sharp shooters were deployed at the roof tops, in view of the meeting. The two women will travel to Pakistan by a commercial flight, and are scheduled to leave by evening. Indian has denied all the charges made by Pakistan, which claims that Jadhav is a secret spy of India.

Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother Avanti speaks to FO Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal outside the Ministry of Foreign Affairs after the meeting with her son. He said the case was still pending before the International Court of Justice, and that Jadhav had requested clemency from Pakistan's army chief, Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa.

In the undated video, Jadhav says: "I am Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav, number 4155 Zulu of the Indian Navy".
