ISLAMABAD:  Responding to media queries, the Spokesperson of Ministry of Foreign Affairs Aisha Faroouqi has said we have noted the statements made in an online lecture on 03 May 2020 by Mr. Harish Salve, India’s legal counsel in the Kulbushan Jadhav case. While suggesting that India may have to go back to International Court of Justice (ICJ), Mr. Salve has made certain statements which are contrary to the facts of the Case.

“We firmly reject the Indian Counsel’s baseless and inaccurate assertion that Pakistan has not complied with the ICJ’s judgment in the case. Pakistan has fully complied with the judgment and remains committed to continue doing so as the case proceeds further”.

She further said  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.

Being a responsible state, Pakistan abides by all its international obligations. It is regrettable that Mr. Salve has chosen to make statements which are inaccurate and misrepresent facts.
