IANS  |  New Delhi 

Prime Minister Modi on Thursday backed External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's statement that his will leave no stone unturned to save alleged spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.

Modi retweeted Sushma Swaraj's tweet from his personal account.

"I assure the nation that under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi we will leave no stone unturned to save Kulbhushan Jadhav," said the External Affairs Minister's tweet, which was reposted by the Prime Minister.

In a major diplomatic, moral and legal victory for India, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Thursday asked Pakistan not to execute Jadhav pending its final decision and inform it of the steps being taken to implement the order.

Union Information and Broadcasting Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu said that India will seek consular access to Jadhav again.

"It is a major victory for India in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case," Naidu tweeted.

"We will be pursuing consular access for him. They are duty bound to give it.. They (Pakistan) are exposed. They have to respect the Vienna Convention," Naidu told reporters separately.
