New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday welcomed the International Court of Justice (ICJ) order staying the execution of former Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav and allowing India consular access to him.

“We welcome today’s verdict in the ICJ. Truth and justice have prevailed," Modi said in a tweet, congratulating the international tribunal for its verdict "based on extensive study of facts".

Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said the verdict is a big win for Modi’s diplomatic initiatives. “The ICJ’s verdict on Kulbhushan Jadhav is big victory for India. The ICJ directing Pakistan to grant consular access to Jadhav and asking them to review the conviction and the sentence is a welcome decision, it is also a big win for PM Narendra Modi’s diplomatic initiative,” Singh said in a tweet.

Former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj also took to Twitter to welcome the order.

The ICJ ruled that Pakistan should review and reconsider the death sentence awarded to Jadhav through a means of its own choosing. Pakistan had unsuccessfully argued that Article 36 of the Vienna Convention does not apply to people involved in espionage.
