New Delhi, September 26
India has expressed disappointment over China’s refusal to allow thousands of Indians, especially students and employees, to return to Beijing. Indian Ambassador to China Vikram Misri described China’s barring of Indians to enter the country as an “unscientific approach” to a humanitarian issue.
25K students stuck
- Nearly 25,000 Indian students, mostly studying medicine, and businessmen are awaiting return to China
- Beijing has suspended flights from India for over 18 months now, citing Covid situation
Invited to speak along with China’s Ambassador to India Sun Weidong at a seminar, Misri said, “Far less complex issues which have a purely humanitarian context and are not connected to bilateral diplomatic stances, such as facilitating the movement of students, businesspersons and stranded family members from India to China for over a year and a half now, await a more balanced and sensitive approach.”
“India, on the other hand, continuing to issue visas to Chinese nationals,” he said. About 25,000 Indian students studying in China have been unable to resume regular classes. From March this year, China has even stopped its own nationals in India from returning home. — TNS
