Yemen: Control room to help Indians to wind up

The control room was set up by External Affairs to help Indians citizens in Yemen.



New Delhi: India on Friday decided to wind up its control room here being operated by its Mission in Yemen for its citizens, citing lack of response lately, but the embassy would continue to render normal consular services as usual.

The control room was set up by the Ministry of External Affairs to help its citizens in Yemen who want to return home.

"In the last few days, only a handful of Indian nationals have sought assistance, from the Embassy of India, Sana`a, for travelling back to India.”

"Yesterday, the Control Room set up by the Ministry of External Affairs at New Delhi, did not receive a single call for information or help," the Ministry said in a statement.

It said the control room would cease to function from 1800 HRS tomorrow and also the help lines being operated by the Embassy.

"The Ministry and the Mission would also continue to monitor the evolving situation in Yemen closely and take whatever steps that are necessary as per exigencies," the statement said.
