Islamabad/New Delhi, July 19 (TIWN) Acting on the International Court of Justice ruling, Pakistan has agreed to grant consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav "according to Pakistani laws", the Pakistan Foreign Office said.

In a statement released post midnight, the Pakistan foreign office said it has informed Jadhav of his rights to consular access under the Vienna Convention.  However, the statement said that Pakistan will grant consular access to Jadhav “according to Pakistani laws”.  “As a responsible state, Pakistan will grant consular access to Commander Kulbushan Jadhav according to Pakistani laws, for which modalities are being worked out,” it said.  The move comes after the ICJ rapped Islamabad for continually denying Jadhav, incarcerated in a military jail in an unknown location in Pakistan, consular access in accordance with the Vienna Convention.
