We Want to Evacuate Indians Trapped in Sudan – Jaishankar
He said I am here in Panama right now. I was in Guyana for the last few days. However, my mind is in Sudan. We are running ‘Operation Kaveri’ there in which we want to evacuate and rescue the stranded Indians in Sudan.
We are working to bring them back or transfer them to some other country and get them out safely, he added.
Jaishankar on Monday announced the launch of Operation Kaveri, a mission to bring back stranded Indians from Sudan, which is facing fierce fighting following a power struggle between the regular army and the RSF.
