Visa for Jadhav’s mother: Sushma’s request to Aziz gets no response
Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj today expressed his dismay at the lack of courtesy shown by his Pakistani counterpart Sartaj Aziz, who does not even acknowledge his personal letter to a Pakistani visa for Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother.
However, it was assured to M. Aziz that any Pakistani citizen who requests a medical visa to travel to India with his recommendation will receive the visa immediately.
In a series of tweets, Ms. Swaraj said: “I have my sympathies to all Pakistani citizens seeking a visa to receive medical treatment in India.
All we need is your recommendation for granting a medical visa to Pakistani citizens. ”
He said a visa application was pending for the Indian citizen Avantika Jadhav who wants to meet his son in Pakistan.
“I wrote a personal letter to Mr. Sartaj Aziz for the granting of a visa to Pakistan. However, M. Aziz has not shown the same courtesy to acknowledge my letter,” she wrote.
Jadhav, 46, was detained by Pakistan in Baluchistan province reticent last year. He was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court charged with espionage and terrorism.
