New Delhi/Islamabad, Sep 12: Shortly after Pakistan announced that it will not give 'second consular access' to Kulbhushan Jadhav, India on Thursday said it will "continue to try" to ensure full implementation of the ICJ verdict and said New Delhi will stick to diplomatic channels to remain in touch with Islamabad on the matter.

"We have heard what the Pakistan foreign ministry spokesman has said....we will still continue to try (koshish karenge) to ensure full implementation of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) verdict," Ministry of External Affairs spokesman Raveesh Kumar told reporters here.

The response was to an assertion by Pakistan foreign ministry spokesman Mohammad Faisal in Islamabad that - "There would be no second consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav".

The MEA spokesman said the first consular access was given to former naval official Kulbhushan Jadhav on September 2 only on the basis of the ICJ verdict.

"You will recall that the verdict was in our favour," he added. (UNI)
