6:34 pm
is w.'s on money seek a politician and usually based in bonn but visiting us here in berlin today now the court has made its decision but he can't enforce that decision so what happens next where the i see james decisions are not binding or to put it in another or to rephrase it the ice ages decisions are binding only if the countries involved consent to the decision so in this particular case pakistan would most likely order a review but as we know pakistan has also hailed the decision as a victory for its justice system so it's likely that of course. john of will not be exonerated he will not be sent back to india relieved of and back to india but there will be a review tell us a little bit about jackass we don't know that much about him and i understand that there was some controversy about a supposed confession ok john there is

a former officer of the indian navy as india with it now. says that when ok let me just go back here a little bit. of was arrested in 2016 and pakistan said they arrested him from balochistan which is a border region which borders afghanistan and iran sensitive region exactly so pakistan said that he was working. that he was an officer of the indian our navy at the time and he was also involved with the indian spy agency that's the research analysis wing also known as draw so pakistan said that he was involved in separatist activities with a lot of birds and that's why they arrested him now india says that he was an indian navy officer who retired and then started his own business at iran's java her airport so well that's the difference between where the 2 countries but otherwise he is a normal guy you have
6:36 pm
a family in mumbai and i think to children and so the lawyer representing pakistan court had said that india is playing political theater here i imagine these 2 countries have never had really good relations has ds precedings made it even worse where you have to understand pakistan's reaction in a within a certain context that the thing is that pakistan has always been represented in the international stage and also in the southeast and stage as a country that harbors terrorists now this is one occasion pakistan can say that india is also promoting terrorist activities in its baluchistan rees region so i mean in that context if you understand markets that i understand pakistan statement . you realize why they're saying it like that but what was the other part of your question then well in terms of the relationship between the 2 countries well i don't know if it really makes it better or worse you know earlier this year there
6:37 pm
was a standoff between india and pakistan where an indian pilot was caught in pakistan and he was and subsequently released and relations became much better i think that a present prime minister iran kind of pakistan is under tremendous domestic pressure to make sure that indian spies not exonerated that pakistan has control over its riddick of system as far as spies. concerned on the other hand if you see what happened in the last days we can just stick the buy into you know this one spy incident in isolation by christiane also arrested terrorists after so youth who was involved or who was the mastermind of the mumbai terror attacks in 2008 so parker over seems to be very serious about its commitment to arrest earlier if it's. open to it if it's actually moving forward so if we don't see just this incident in isolation i don't think it's really going to worsen relations ok. thank you thank
