Mr Jaitley, who is in Srinagar for the GST Council meeting, tweeted that the verdict came as a relief.
"#ICJ verdict endorses the relevance and necessity of procedural and substantive fairness which was denied by Pakistan," he said in a series of tweets.
He also complimented Harish Salve, who represented India at the ICJ at The Hague. "Well done! #HarishSalve - you have done India Proud."
ICJ on Thursday ordered Pakistan not to execute Kulbhushan Jadhav, charged by a military court there for spying.
