Welcoming the verdict, the MEA spokesperson posted on Twitter, "We welcome the justice delivered just now by ICJ in Hague, in the favour of India. The court by a vote of 15-1 has upheld India's claim that Pakistan is in violation of Vienna Convention on several counts."
"We also appreciate direction by the International Court of Justice that Pakistan should review and reconsider conviction and sentence given to Shri Jadhav by Pakistani military court, " the post said.
"We note that the Court has directed that Pakistan is under an obligation to inform Jadhav without further delay of his rights and to provide Indian consular officers access to him in accordance with Vienna Convention. We expect Pakistan to implement directive immediately, " the post added.
"This judgement validates India's position on this matter fully. We will continue to work vigorously for Shri Kulbhushan Jadhav's early release and return to India."
