No deal to be made on issue of Indian sentenced spy Kulbhushan Jadhav: FO


Islamabad, Nov 14 (TNS): Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Muhammad Faisal has categorically stated that no deal will be made on the issue of Indian sentenced spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.

He was responding to a question during weekly news briefing in Islamabad on Thursday.

The Spokesperson said all the decisions about Kulbhushan Jadhav will be made in accordance with the Pakistani laws while honouring the verdict of International Court of Justice in the case.

Condemning the Indian Supreme Court’s verdict regarding Babari Masjid, Dr. Muhammad Faisal said the decision has put security of all the mosques and worship places in India under threat.

Responding a question, the Spokesperson said twelve thousand Sikh Yatrees visited Kartarpur on the opening day on last Saturday. He said under the agreement, five thousand Sikh Yatrees can visit Kartarpur daily, pay their respects and return the same day.

The Spokesperson regretted that lockdown continues in occupied Kashmir for 103 consecutive days and there is complete communications black out.

Condemning restrictions on basic human rights in Occupied Kashmir, he demanded immediate restoration of internet and other communications facilities in the held territory.

He said India has been caught in blind alley after the August 5 act of withdrawing the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

He said Pakistan will continue highlighting the Kashmir issue at every international forum as part of support to the oppressed Kashmiris for their right to self-determination.
