Indians in Japan safe: Krishna
New Delhi: All Indians in tsunami-hit
Japan are safe and India will extend all assistance to help the people of Japan in its hour of crisis, External Affairs
Minister S M Krishna Monday said.
"I spoke to the Ambassador there. The Ambassador told
me that all the 25,000 Indians in Japan, most of them are in and around Tokyo... they are all safe and he is in touch with the Indian community," Krishna told reporters outside Parliament.
He said the embassy will "do whatever is possible" to help the Indians and a helpline has been set up there and
"they are free to contact the Indian embassy for assistance."
Asked about the Indians stranded in the affected areas, Krishna said, "All of them have established communication with our embassy. And all of them are safe."
Asked about India`s assistance to Japan, Krishna said
India has sent a plane-load of blankets to Japan and India`s
ambassador, who is in touch with the Japanese Government, is
"trying to find out what India can do."
"Whatever assistance that India is capable of and
which would help the people of Japan in the hour of crisis, it
would be done," Krishna added.
