Considering India’s request to grant visa to Jadhav's mother: Pak

Islamabad: Pakistan today said that it was considering India's request to grant a visa to Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother so that she can travel to the country to meet her son who was sentenced to death by a military court.

India had requested Pakistan to allow Avantika Jadhav to meet her son. "Pakistan is considering the Indian request for the grant of visa to the mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav," Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said.

Zakaria's remarks came two days after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in New Delhi said that she had written a "personal letter" to Adviser to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz asking for approval of Avantika’s visa application so that she may travel to Pakistan.

She also said that Aziz did not even respond to her letter.

"I wrote a personal letter to Mr Sartaj Aziz for the grant of her visa to Pakistan. However, Mr Aziz has not shown the courtesy even to acknowledge my letter," she had tweeted.

Zakaria also accused India of imposing "conditions" for the approval of medical visas of Pakistani patients seeking medical treatment in the country.

Zakaria said that asking for recommendations from Aziz to grant visas was against "diplomatic norms".
