    Kulbhushan Jadhav order: PM thanks Sushma Swaraj, Harish Salve

    New Delh
    i: PM Narendra Modi speaks to EAM Sushma Swaraj to thank her; appreciates efforts of advocate Harish Salve who represented India in the Jadhav case.

    MEA Sushma Swaraj said, “The ICJ order has come as a great relief to the familly of Kulbhushan Jadhav and people of India. We are grateful to Mr Harish Salve for presenting India’s case so effectively before ICJ. I assure the nation that under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi we will leave no stone unturned to save Kulbhushan Jadhav. I compliment my team of officers in the MEA for their tireless efforts and hard work.”

    In a major reprieve to India, the International Court of Justice, the primary judicial organ of the United Nations, has stayed the death sentence awarded to former Indian Naval officer and alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav by the Pakistan military court, citing that both – India and Pakistan – were bound by the Vienna Convention and that the rights invoked by New Delhi under the Vienna Convention were plausible.
