The Pakistan High Commission on Wednesday issued visas to Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife and mother to visit Islamabad to meet him.

High-ranking military and Ministry of Foreign Affairs officials met on Tuesday afternoon to decide details of the Jadhav family's visit. But India insisted that Jadhav's mother be included as well, with an Indian High Commission official present during the meeting.

Faisal said they were being provided with a meeting with him in the light of "Islamic traditions and based on purely humanitarian grounds".

Foreign Office spokesperson, Dr Mohammad Faisal said on Thursday that due to Pakistan's effective and successful diplomacy, the Heart of Asia (HoA)-IP members had agreed to drop the selected list of proscribed groups from the Baku Declaration.

Flu cases on the rise in Montana
Meanwhile, Delaware's Division of Public Health (DPH) reported its first flu death of the season on December 13, 2017. A press release by MCMC stated that influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death.

Islamabad last week said it was allowing the wife and mother of Mr. Jadhav - on death row in Pakistan for alleged espionage and terrorist activities - to meet him on humanitarian grounds. "We await Indian decision in this regard", he added. Jadhav has been in the Pakistani jail since April over allegations of being an Indian spy.

Pakistan on Saturday had announced that it had received the visa applications and was processing them. The ICJ halted his execution on India's appeal pending the final verdict by it. Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel from its restive Balochistan province on March 3 previous year after he reportedly entered from Iran.

Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh will fly to India tonight to bring Indian Spy Kulbhushan Jadhav 's mother and wife to Pakistan for December 25 meeting. Pakistan earlier this week filed a counter-memorial in the ICJ.
