Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet mother, wife in Islamabad today

Christmas gift Kulbhusan Jadhav to meet mother wife in Pakistan on December 25

The Pakistan Foreign Office on Monday, in a statement, clarified that former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav was not given consular access.

"I have been treated with dignity and honour and in a very professional manner by the Pakistani authorities".

Pakistan had allowed the meeting of death raw convict Kulbhushan Jadhav with his mother and wife on humanitarian grounds. Officials also said Jadhav's family would not interact with the media.

One may argue here that Pakistan may have made them change their clothes before they met Kulbhushan, but then there are pictures from after the meeting that show them wearing the same clothes that they were wearing before the meeting.

Damian Green Was Fired by Theresa May For Lying, Jeremy Hunt Acknowledges
Mr Green has stepped down from two roles: first secretary of state and cabinet office minister. The Prime Minister, who asked him to stand down, said she was "extremely sad" at his exit.

Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh is accompanying them.

It was the fist time Jadhav was meeting his family since his arrest in March a year ago. Faisal said Jadhav was the "face of Indian terrorism, especially in Pakistan".

"Can you imagine what a mother who last saw her son two years ago must have felt when allowed to meet him from across a glass partition and was unable to touch him", Pawar told PTI.

"Media may kindly be kept at a distance to ensure security of the family members and avoid any harassment to them", he quoted from a letter the foreign ministry received from the Indian government ahead of Monday's meeting.

The 229.6-foot-tall Falcon Heavy will be able to lift 140,660 pounds to low-Earth orbit. He said earlier this month that he wants to send the auto into "Mars orbit".

Roads leading to the Constitution Avenue, on which MOFA is located, have been closed for traffic.

Although Pakistan had issued visas to Jadhav's wife and mother on "humanitarian grounds" earlier this month, it has denied India consular access to the spy despite repeated requests on the grounds that it is non-applicable under the Vienna Convention due to his involvement in espionage, FO Spokesperson Dr Faisal said.

"Kulbhushan travelled between Pakistan, India, Dubai and Thailand for around 17 times" said the official and added that Pakistan had submitted counter-memorial to India's claim before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on December 13th.

India, however, maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.
