The court, formally known as the International Court of Justice, is the U.N.'s court for hearing disputes between states and its rulings are binding.
At the core of the dispute is the fate of Kulbhushan Sudir Jadhav, a former officer in the Indian navy who was arrested in March 2016 in the Pakistani province of Baluchistan.
"It is appropriate for the court to order that Pakistan take all measures at its disposal to ensure mister Jadhav is not executed before this court has given its final decision", said presiding judge Ronny Abraham, reading the court's unanimous decision.
