S Jaishankar on Operation Kaveri: India continues to bring back more people from war-torn Sudan
Operation Kaveri: As another batch of 40 people arrived in Delhi on Sunday, around 2,300 Indian citizens have safely reached India from war-torn Sudan.
Giving an update on Operation Kaveri, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar said in a tweet that a C-130J Indian Airforce aircraft landed in Delhi with 40 passengers.
With this flight, around 2,300 people reached India.
After Prime Minister Narendra Modi had undertaken a review of the situation prevailing in Khartoum around 10 days back, where he had emphasized an evacuation plan for Indian citizens living there, it was decided to launch a large-scale rescue operation titled Operation Kaveri, to bring Indian citizens back from the troubled nation.
With the help of Indian Navy warships and Indian Air Force carriers, 2,300 Indian citizens have been successfully brought back from Khartoum to India via the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah.
More than 500 people have been killed in Sudan, ever since fights broke out between the country’s army and paramilitary forces from April 14 onwards. One Indian citizen, too, had been killed in the civil war.
