Pakistan's foreign office in the national capital said it would allow Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet his wife.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said a Note Verbale to this effect was sent to the Indian High Commission here on Friday.

Pakistan government has chose to allow former Indian naval officer, Kulbhushan Jadhav, who is on a death row for espionage, to meet his wife on humanitarian grounds.

Kulbhushan Jhadev, a serving Commander of the Indian Navy, working with Indian Intelligence Agency RAW was apprehended by Pakistan law enforcement agencies past year after he illegally crossed over into Pakistan.

Jadhav, on 22 June, filed a mercy petition before Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa.

If the Trump administration follows through with its threat, the US withdrawal would take effect in November 2020. An invitation will soon be sent to invite the United States "at a diplomatic level", the official said.

"Jadhav confessed before a Magistrate and the Court that he was tasked by RAW to plan, coordinate and organize espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities aimed at destabilizing and waging war against Pakistan", Pakistan said. India has been trying to arrange a meeting of Jadhav with his family but Pakistan had not accepted visa applications so far.

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav from its restive Balochistan province on 3 March previous year after he reportedly entered from Iran.

India and Pakistan are fighting out the case in UN's International Court of Justice (ICJ) at The Hague.

After India approached the ICJ, a 10-member bench on May 18 restrained Pakistan from executing Jadhav till adjudication of the case.

This means that official Indian access to Jadhav will not be allowed. The memorial (written pleadings) was submitted by India to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on September 15. Islamabad, however, all of New Delhi's requests, claiming that since the Indian national faces espionage charges, Pakistan is not obligated to grant India consular access to him.
