Islamabad: The Kulbhushan Jadhav episode has exposed the real face of India to the world for its involvement in terrorism, terror financing, subversion and spying activities in a sovereign state of Pakistan.
The Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria while talking to PTV here on Thursday has said Kulbhushan Yadhav has twice made the confessions for his crimes against the humanity adding that It was one of the landmark cases of the state terrorism, the media reported.
The spokesperson said that the International Court of Justice (ICJ) has given a revised declaration for Pakistan under the Article 36-2, which is stronger than the declaration of 1960. He said the revised declaration was added new clauses which excludes Pakistan from the ICJ jurisdiction in all those matters which are related to Pakistan’s national security.

He said one of those cases was Faravahar versus USA, April 9, 1998, on which provisional measures were indicated. The second case related to Germany versus USA and the decision of which was given on March 3, 1999. The third case related to Mexico versus the United States, he added.
