The Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan will also be allowed to accompany Jadhav's family during the meeting.

Regarding a question on the possible immediate execution of Commander Kulbhushan Jhadev and this being his last meeting with his family, Dr. Faisal said, "Let me assure you that the Commander is under no threat of immediate execution and his mercy petitions are still pending".

On the issue of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Foreign Office spokesperson said Indian spy's mother and wife were being provided with a meeting in light of Islamic traditions and based on purely humanitarian grounds.

Pakistan on Wednesday issued visa to Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife and mother to visit Islamabad to meet the Indian prisoner on death row, the foreign office said. MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, "Modalities of this meeting are still being worked out and who goes when, how do they go, how does the meeting takes place, these are the things both countries are engaged in".

Hardik Patel says BJP hacked EVMs for Gujarat Elections
But he blamed the victorious BJP for allegedly manipulating the electronic voting machines to corner Patel votes. In his congratulating statement, Hardik Patel alleged BJP for EVM tampering.

Faisal earlier had tweeted, "Visa applications of mother and wife of Commander Jadhav received for their visit on humanitarian grounds". "However, the subsequent Indian behaviour, trying to use the listing of these groups to malign Pakistan forced Pakistan to suggest a comprehensive list - of all terrorist groups irrespective of their ideology, religion and geography etc". "We await Indian decision in this regard", he added.

Jadhav was sentenced to death by a military court, and his clemency appeal is pending with the Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa for the past four months. India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy. Pakistan earlier this week filed a counter-memorial in the ICJ.

The International Court of Justice in May halted his execution on India's appeal. India rejects Pakistan's claim that Jadhav was arrested on March 3, 2016, from Balochistan's Mashkhel area.
