ISLAMABAD — Pakistan has granted rare consular access to an Indian man convicted of spying and facing the death penalty in a case that's been a source of friction between the nuclear-armed neighbors who have recently seen tensions between them escalate further over disputed Kashmir.

The foreign ministry says it allowed Monday an Indian diplomat in Islamabad to meet with imprisoned Kulbhushan Jadhav, in compliance with a July order from the International Court of Justice.

At the time, the United Nations' highest court ordered Pakistan to stay the execution of Jadhav, who was arrested in 2016. A military tribunal sentenced him to death a year later.

Anti-India sentiment has grown in Pakistan since New Delhi moved to downgrade Kashmir's special status last month. The Himalayan region is split between India and Pakistan.
