SLAMABAD: The Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said on Thursday that Pakistan offered to arrange a meeting of convicted Indian death row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav with his wife purely on the humanitarian grounds.
In a weekly briefing, the spokesperson said a note verbale to this effect has also been dispatched to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad.
The officials are now waiting for a response from Indian side, he added.
He said a protest has been lodged with Indian deputy high commissioner on Wednesday (yesterday) over the rising number of cross-border attacks in Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJK).
“The Indian forces violated the truce along Line of Control (LoC) as many as 1300 times in the current year,” he remarked.
He said the Indian diplomat has been urged to respect the ceasefire accord and investigate the violation.
On the occasion, the FO’s South Asia chief also condemned the cross border attack from Afghanistan, claiming lives of two Pakistani soldiers, and said the Afghan Charge d’affaires has also been summoned and a protest was registered over the incident.
