RAWALPINDI (9 News) – DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor has said that the verdict of International Court of Justice (ICJ) is a victory for Pakistan.
Talking to news channel, he said that the ICJ had not nullified the sentence awarded to Kulbhushan Jadhav by the military court. “Today is another Feb 27 for India as it once again got a surprise,” he said.
The DG ISPR said that the Indian terrorist Kulbhushan Jadhav does not deserve the consular access. “We managed a meeting of Kulbhushan Jadhav with his wife and mother on humanitarian grounds,” he said.
Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said that the mercy plea of Kulbhushan is with COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa who did not made the decision on it because the case was in the ICJ.
He thanked the International Court of Justice, saying the verdict is the best one. “We stated that Kulbhushan’s sentence is as per law and our stance was accepted,” he said.
The DG ISPR said that the court had also accepted Pakistan’s stance that Kulbhushan travelled on a fake passport.
