Relief from ICJ

Shri Anand Sharma He said that in the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, India got relief in the International Court and we welcome this. But this fight is a long one, we expect that Pakistan will take a message from this and shall abide in the future by whatever is said by the court.The United Nations also has to see that Pakistan does not put any hindrance and shall follow and respect the directive of the court.

Shri Sharma said that a door has opened because this was an issue where India had no option, looking at the mentality of Pakistan. In one way, the decision was taken by military court, there was no Counselor access which is a legal assistance which is provide, it was not given. India had to approach the International Court under the Vienna Convention.

In the case of Khulbhushan Jadhav, it was clear that the Vienna Convention was violated by Pakistan. Thursday, 18th May, 2017.
