Days after visas were issued to jailed Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav's family, sources in Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) revealed that the meeting has been scheduled for December 25.

The MoFA sources further informed that the duration of the meeting will be between 45 minutes to an hour.
Pakistan wants Jadhav's mother and wife to talk to the media, sources said, adding that Indian media too can be present, provided New Delhi gives them permission to do so.

Sources told WION New Delhi is flying Kulbhushan Jadhav's family to Islamabad.

The Pakistani High Commission in India on Wednesday issued visas to Jadhav's family for three days -- December 24, 25 and 26.

The neighbouring nation accepted India's plea after rejecting over 30 requests for consular access to the jailed Indian national. 

On April 10, Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on alleged charges of espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities.

However, his execution was halted by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on May 18.

The case is currently pending before the world court.
