Pakistan on Friday said Indian "spy" Kulbhushan Jadhav was sentenced according to the country's laws and that India had not responded to "specific information" sought on him in January.

 

Nepal and China will be holding their first joint military exercises from April 16-25. While Chinese military aid to Nepal has significantly boosted in recent years, this is the first time that Kathmandu and Beijing are holding such a joint military exercise in Nepal.

 

Tensions between India and Pakistan flared with Pakistan on Tuesday justifying the death sentence awarded to alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav and said it was capable of protecting itself against "external threats". India has warned Pakistan that bilateral ties would be hit and Islamabad would have to face consequences if it went ahead with the death sentence awarded to Jadhav, who Islamabad says was arrested in Balochistan in March 2016.

 

The Pakistani military on Monday said that Indian "spy" Kulbhushan Jadhav, arrested in Balochistan in March 2016, had been sentenced to death for "waging war" against the country. India retorted by saying that if Pakistan hanged Jadhav, a former Indian naval officer, it will be considered "a case of premeditated murder" by New Delhi, making this the latest friction point between the two perennially sparring neighbours.

 

India and Australia signed six memorandums of understanding (MoUs), including on cooperation in fighting international terrorism and on civil aviation security, following delegation-level bilateral talks headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Australian counterpart Malcolm Turnbull in New Delhi Monday.

 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday said that there is an  ideology in South Asia which promotes terrorism which is obstructing growth in the whole region.

 
With India-Canada ties "blooming and thriving", Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to visit India either late this year or early next year, the country's High Commissioner to India Nadir Patel said in New Delhi on Friday.
 

The Chinese media on Thursday kept up its tirade against India over the Dalai Lama's visit to Arunachal Pradesh, with an editorial in a state-run daily suggesting that if China, with its higher military capabilities and support among India's neighbours, wants it can create trouble in Jammu and Kashmir.

 

India's External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday slammed Pakistan's move to declare Gilgit-Baltistan as its fifth province and said the whole of Jammu and Kashmir, including areas under Pakistan's occupation, is an Indian territory.

 

The United States is concerned about the state of India-Pakistan relations and President Donald Trump himself may get involved in a peace process between them, US Permanent Representative to the UN Nikki Haley, who is of Indian origin, said Monday. India opposes any external involvement in bilateral issues with Pakistan.
