Jadhav fallout: India calls off maritime talks with Pakistan

New Delhi: India has called off bilateral maritime security talks with Pakistan scheduled for April 17, a coastal security source said on Saturday.

Pakistan rejected India’s 14th attempt for consular access to Jadhav

A delegation led by Pakistan’s Maritime Security Agency officials was to visit New Delhi for maritime talks with the Indian Coast Guard to discuss issues related to fishermen and search and rescue operations in the seas.

The decision came amid tension between India and Pakistan over the death sentence awarded to former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pakistan’s military court on charges of spying and espionage on April 10.

On Friday, Pakistan rejected India’s 14th attempt for consular access to Jadhav and maintained his trial was in accordance with the country’s laws.
