Pakistan Foreign minister Khawaja Asif has claimed that Islamabad could have swapped Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav for a terrorist involved in an attack on an army school in Peshawar in 2014.

Asif, during a conversation at the Asia Society in New York on Tuesday, said, “The TTP (Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan) operates from the Afghan soil. The terrorist, who killed the children in the APS (Army Public School) in Peshawar is in Afghan custody.
