Indians in Thailand safe, Govt says it supports consultations
New Delhi: India on Tuesday said all its nationals are safe in Thailand, which is witnessing anti-government protests for nearly a week that claimed at least four lives so far, and supported efforts to address the situation there through consultations to uphold rule of law.
"We are following developments taking place in Thailand and are in constant contact with our Embassy in Bangkok, which is also providing updated information on current situation to Indian travellers and residents, including through its website," Ministry of External Affairs said here, adding all Indian nationals in that country are safe.
It said India was "supportive of all measures and efforts to address the situation through consultations in order to uphold the rule of law, preserve democracy and restore normalcy".
Meanwhile, in Thailand, protesters demanding the resignation of premier Yingluck Shinawatra today claimed a "partial victory" after police allowed them to storm the government headquarters, easing tensions after three days of clashes that claimed at least four lives.
Hundreds of protesters poured into the lawns of the premier`s office after police removed barricades, saying that they would no longer use force against activists trying to storm the Government House and police headquarters.
