Islamabad, July 2 (TNS): Pakistan on Sunday rejected Indian request for granting consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav – the Indian spy sentenced to death for fomenting terrorism in Pakistan.
Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakaria said India is involved in terror financing and terrorist activities in Pakistan and Kulbhushan Jadhav as a serving officer in Indian prime spy agency has come for this purpose in Balochistan. That’s why, granting consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav is out of question.
Earlier, India and Pakistan exchanged lists of prisoners in each other’s custody on Saturday.
The lists were exchanged through diplomatic channels in line with the Consular Access Agreement between the two countries.
“India has again requested Pakistan to grant full and early consular access to Indian nationals in its custody, including Hamid Nehal Ansari and Jadhav,” reads a statement issued by India’s external affairs ministry.
Foreign Office Spokesman Nafees Zakaria says India is involved in terror financing and terrorist activities in Pakistan, state run Radio Pakistan reported.
He said India has been using the soil of Afghanistan against Pakistan to promote terrorism.
Nafees Zakaria said Indian subversive designs against Pakistan have been exposed after the trial of Kulbhushan Yadhave and his confessional statement of Ahsanullah Ahsan.
The spokesman said Indian barbaric activities against innocent Kashmiris in the Occupied Kashmir have also been exposed to the world.
He said Pakistan has informed the United Nations General Assembly and international community regarding Indian atrocities and human rights violations in the Occupied valley.
Nafees Zakaria said Kashmiri people are struggling for their basic right to self determination.
