Islamabad, May 18 (IBNS): Hours after the stay order passed by the International Court of Justice on Kulbhushan Jadhav's death sentence, Pakistan said that ICJ has no jurisdiction in matters of national security, media reports on Thursday.

Jadhav, a former navy officer, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court last month after being convicted of spying.

The Attorney General of Pakistan even said that the order of ICJ does not change the status of Jadhav's case at all but they would come to a "logical end".

Handing out India a big diplomatic victory, International Court of Justice on Thursday stayed the execution of former Indian  Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav, ordering Pakistan not to hang him pending a final decision.

"Pakistan should not execute Jadhav pending final proceedings. The decision to stay Kulbhushan Jadhav's execution pending ICJ hearing is unanimous," Judge Ronny Abraham, President of the Court, said.

The court asked Pakistan to take "all measures at its disposal" to ensure that Jadhav is not executed till a final decision is taken.

The order comes ten days after India approached the UN's top court for "provisional measure" of protection -- an interim relief -- in the Jadhav case.
