The official spoke on condition of anonymity. Jadhav's family had a brief stop at the mission again before they headed to the airport to catch a flight to India via Dubai.

"Pakistan mere completed a formality by arranging the meeting in such a manner", he said.

It was not clear if the video was filmed under duress.

Pakistan released a video of Jadhav in which he thanked the Pak govt for "grand gesture". "As far as I know there were no private messages exchanged, but let us except that something is better than nothing particularly if it turns out to be the first step in the positive direction and that's what we must hope for", Tharoor added.

The development came hours after Pakistan allowed convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife to meet him in Islamabad, in what the Foreign Ministry said was a "humanitarian gesture".

India's deputy high commissioner J P Singh will accompany the visitors to the meeting.

Indian death row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav on Monday met his wife and mother at the foreign affairs ministry, Pakistani officials said.

In Balochistan, Pakistan's largest but least developed province, security forces have been battling a years-long separatist insurgency that authorities have repeatedly characterised as "terrorism" promoted by hostile states such as India.




Other than media and security personnel, no other traffic was allowed in the area around the Pakistan MoFA building.

Before the meeting, the security check of the family was performed.

The wife and mother greeted media persons with a namaste after arriving at the ministry but did not respond to their questions.

Jadhav's case is pending before the International Court of Justice.

Pakistani officials insist Jadhav has confessed before the country's military court that he was tasked by the Indian intelligence agency "to plan, coordinate and organize espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities" against Pakistan.

Islamabad defended its stance of not granting diplomatic access to Jadhav, insisting he is a serving officer of the Indian navy and entered the country with the intent of spying and carrying out subversive acts.

India says Jadhav is a former officer of the Indian navy but he rejects the charges against him as baseless, saying he has no connection with the government.

The ICJ stayed the hanging on May 18, after India approached it against the death sentence.
