The Pakistani Foreign Office on Thursday said that they are considering the External Affairs Ministry’s request of granting visa to Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother. The development was confirmed by Pakistani Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, earlier on Monday, took on Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz for not entertaining the request for visa to the mother of former naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death for alleged espionage.
In the same thread, Swaraj also criticized the Pakistani Foreign Affairs advisor for denying visas to Pakistani nationals seeking medical treatment in India. She requested Aziz to grant the visas for these Pakistani citizens.
