Foreign Office says an Indian diplomat will also be present during the meeting

The Ministry of External Affairs accepted Pakistan's offer of allowing Jadhav's wife to meet him, but put forward three conditions.

"Pakistan has conveyed that they will give visa to Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife", External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said.

In a tweet, Ms Swaraj said, she has spoken to the mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav, Mrs. Avantika Jadhav and informed her about it.

Foreign Office spokesperson Mohammad Faisal said during his weekly news briefing that a staff member from the Indian embassy will be allowed to be present at the meeting. However, it had stopped short of giving a sovereign guarantee about the safety and security of Jadhav's wife, if she visits the country.

In a significant development, Pakistan on Friday said it will allow the wife and mother of convicted Indian death row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet him in prison.
