China cites Covid for evacuating its citizens from India

The Chinese Government has asked its citizens staying in India and willing to return, to register by Wednesday.

New Delhi, May 26

China has said it is organising evacuation for its citizens from India in view of the rising Covid cases in the country. In a notice on the Embassy website, the Chinese Government has asked its citizens staying in India and willing to return, to register by Wednesday.

Brazil and Russia have three times more cases than India, but China has so far issued no such advisory linking evacuation of its nationals in those countries to a rise in Covid cases. Embassy sources had earlier denied any link with tension on the Sino-Indian border.

“In consideration of the development of the epidemic situation in India, the Chinese side is planning to dispatch temporary flights to India to bring back students, tourists and business inspectors who are facing difficulties,” said Chinese Embassy spokesperson Ji Rong. — TNS
