The Dawn, in an editorial, said that a Visa application by the mother of convicted Jadhav is the latest opportunity for India and Pakistan to back away from an increasingly confrontational stance against each other. However, Pakistan can not execute Jadhav since a stay has been ordered by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) after India approached the international body for justice. Pakistan has repeatedly denied requests to provide New Delhi consular access to Jadhav.

Senior Supreme Court lawyer Pavani Parameswara Rao on Monday asserted that there can be no imminent execution of former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav as the matter is pending before the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

India has described as propaganda Pakistan's claims of evidence against Jadhav, saying his so-called confessions under duress have no meaning.

Pakistan claims to have arrested Jadhav from Balochistan province on March 3 past year after he reportedly entered from Iran.
