Angolan ambassador summoned by MEA
New Delhi: Ministry of External Affairs on Thursday summoned Ambassador of Angola Manuel Eduardo Dos Santos Silva regarding the "work-related" issue involving nearly 1,200 Indians in that country.

About 1,200 Indian workers, employed by a Dubai-based company, are facing problems in the African country due to non-payment of wages, resulting in a strike.
