Pakistan media response to ICJ order

There is a pervasive sense of defeat about the ICJ order and a temptation to blame the Nawaz government for not taking the issue seriously. However, there is a determination to fight the case marshaling all the resources available in the future hearings at the ICJ.

There is a significant section advocating grant of consular access to Kulbushan, but they now recognise that there is no other option now but to defend the position in light of the bilateral agreement between the two nations in 2008.

Many commentators argued that by taking the case to the ICJ, India has provided a unique opportunity to acquaint international community with India's real intentions vis-a-vis Pakistan and provide ICJ with all plausible evidence of Indian conspiracies against Pakistan and its sponsorship of terrorist activities within Pakistan.
