"The Government of Pakistan has decided to arrange a meeting of Commander Kulbhushan Jhadav with his wife, in Pakistan, purely on humanitarian grounds. A Note Verbale to this effect has been sent to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, today'" a foreign office statement said.

Kulbushan Jhadav which India claimed was a its former Naval official was apprehended by Pakistan law enforcement agencies on March 3, 2016 after he allegedly crossed over into Pakistan.

His video confession was released by Pakistan in which he stated that he was tasked by RAW to plan, coordinate and organize espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities aimed at destabilizing and waging war against Pakistan.

Kulbhushan Jhadav was sentenced to death by a military court while Army Chief upheld his conviction. His clemency appeal is pending before the army chief for the past four months. Pakistani officials said that there are still two forums of appeal left for Jhadav even if the army chief refuses his mercy appeal.

India went to International Court of Justice against Jhadav conviction after which the sentence was stayed by the ICJ.
