Sadiq was further reported to have said that Pakistan should be united and not play politics on the Jadhav issue.

Pakistan had earlier said that ICJ has no jurisdiction in matters of national security.

Aziz claimed that Jadhav was not an ordinary Indian, he was "an officer in the Indian Navy who has also admitted to carrying out espionage activities in Pakistan".

Dalveer Bhandari, a former judge of the Supreme Court of India is part of the 12 judge panel in the International Court of Justice that had ordered a stay on the execution of Jadhav. "In fact, that is why it seems that Pakistan did not seriously object to the jurisdiction of ICJ", he observed.

ICJ stays execution of Jadhav who is in Pak's custody.

During a press conference, Aziz said that Jadhav's punishment will be in accordance with domestic laws.

Beyonce, Jay Z celebrate twins at star-studded baby shower
Queen Bey's twins are expected to be born in July this year and will be younger siblings to five-year-old Blue Ivy . Beyonce , 35, announced she was expecting twins on Instagram back in February by sharing a photo of her baby bump.

Aziz, however, maintained that Qureshi had "courageously" presented Pakistan's case in the court, the Nation reported.

A Mumbai-based businessman has been arrested in Islamabad for allegedly not having complete travel documents, media reports said on Sunday.

"The correct position is that Pakistan had signed off to an unconditional declaration to agree to the jurisdiction of the ICJ way back in September 1960". He said legal points should be discussed but there should be no politics on the issue of Jadhav. "By going to the ICJ we may have opened up a Pandora's box", Katju said.

The Pakistan government has come under a lot of criticism for its "mishandling" of the case at ICJ. Pakistan alleges that Jadhav is a Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent and is responsible for fomenting unrest in Balochistan, the troubled Pakistani region where Islamabad has long accused RAW of promoting terrorism. Khawar Qureshi told Geo TV that the order issued by the ICJ only enabled a full hearing of the case.

The International Court of Justice ruled that there is the possibility of "irrevocable prejudice to the rights of Jadhav".
