Pakistan will allow Kulbhushan Jadhav's wife and mother to travel and meet him later this month, accompanied by an Indian diplomat, according to external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj.

Jadhav is at the heart of a dispute between India and Pakistan, which is now being played out at the International Court of Justice.

After two weeks, Pakistan accepted most of India's requests, giving the date of the meeting as December 25.

During his weekly news briefing, the spokesman said a staff member from the Indian embassy will also be present during the meeting.

Pakistani security agencies on March 24, 2016 apprehended an "on-duty RAW agent" from Balochistan. Earlier, Pakistan had allowed visa for Jadhav's wife only.

The minister asked Pakistan to allow a diplomatic officer of Indian High Commission to accompany Jadhav's family in Pakistan. "I have spoken to Mrs. Avantika Jadhav mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav and informed her about this".

Both were closed for the day, as was Santa Monica College and all schools in the Santa Monica-Malibu school district. The fire is occurring while fighters across Southern California are battling a blaze in Ventura County.

Jadhav, an ex-Indian Navy personnel, was sentenced to death by Pakistan's military court in April 2017 on charges of espionage, terrorism. We have also sought a sovereign guarantee from the Pakistan Government to ensure safety and security of both. Pakistan has proposed that the meeting take place on December 25 but the Indian government is expected take a final decision on the date after consultations with Mr Jadhav's mother and wife. Jadhav filed an appeal with Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa for clemency, which is still pending.

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested him from restive Balochistan province on March 3 a year ago after he reportedly entered from Iran.

Jadhav was arrested by Pakistani authorities a year ago.

The ICJ has asked Pakistan to submit its response or memorial by December 13 before the court could start further proceedings in the case.

India had vociferously opposed his death sentence and denied all allegations against Jadhav, who is a retired Indian Navy officer.
