Pakistan Foreign Minister Khwaja Asif claimed today that he received an offer from the Afghanistan National Security Advisor of Afghanistan to swap Kulbhushan Jadhav for a Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) terrorist involved in the Peshawar Army Public School attack of 2014. Kulbhushan Jadhav, an Indian National, was sentenced to death after he was convicted by a military court in Pakistan on charges of terrorism and espionage. India moved to the International Court of Justice for a stay on the execution of Jadhav and won.
Some analysts see this as a calculated move by the Pakistan FM to divert attention from Pakistan after the US and India slammed it at the United Nations for providing safe haven to terrorists.
