Following the International Court of Justice (ICJ) verdict in the high profile Kulbhushan Jadhav case on Wednesday wherein India was handed a big win and Pakistan dealt a dressing down over its sham kangaroo military quasi-judiciary, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani welcomed the international court's order.
Moments after the ICJ stayed Pakistan's death sentence for Kulbhushan Jadhav and ordered a review and reconsideration, along with ordering Pak to grant India consular access, Smriti Irani and Nirmala Sitharaman appreciated the big win that India garnered in the highly-sensitive life-and-death case involving India and Pakistan.
