PM Narendra Modi will chair a high-level meeting to review the situation relating to Indians in Sudan.
Earlier, the Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said the MEA is in contact with the Indian embassy in Sudan.
“This is an issue on which we are keeping a very close watch and the evolving situation there,” Bagchi said.
“Our mission in Khartoum is in contact the Indian community there through formal and informal channels. Our embassy has issued several advisories,” he added.
A control room has also been opened in New Delhi to address the concerns more efficiently. “We have set up a 24×7 dedicated control room for providing information and assistance,” Bagchi informed.
“Most of the calls are being received in Khartoum. However, there are people who are contacting here (MEA office in New Delhi). More than 100 calls have been received in less than 24 hours,” Bagchi informed.
