"We condemn India's baseless allegation. India did not allow access to Pakistan prisoners for many years. We request India to refrain from making such statements that will further damage

relations between the two countries," said Aziz.

India conveyed to Pakistan that it will appeal the order against Jadhav and is studying the Pakistan Army Act.

"All political parties are unanimous that Kulbhushan should be given death sentence. All legal processes were followed in this case," said Aziz.
