Naval ship to ferry 300 more Indians from Yemen

 New Delhi : An Indian naval ship was waiting to leave the Yemeni port of Al Hodeidah, on the western coast, to ferry another batch of more than 300 Indian nationals out of the strife-torn Gulf country as 358 Indians were flown back to India on Thursday.


According to defence ministry spokesperson Sitanshu Kar, the second batch of Indian nationals have been told to assemble in Al Hodeidah to wait for INS Sumitra, which was awaiting clearance from the local Yemeni authorities to enter the port.

Minister of State for External Affairs V.K. Singh, who is in Djibouti since Tuesday to coordinate the evacuation operations with the Indian Navy and the Indian Air Force, met Djibouti Foreign Minister Mohamoud Ali Youssouf to thank him.

All Indian nationals have been taken by sea from Yemen to Djibouti, which is on the Horn of Africa, from where they are being flown back to India on board Globemaster transport planes.

"Diplomacy in support of evacuation efforts, MoS @Gen_VKSingh thanks Foreign Minister Mohamoud Ali Youssouf of Djibouti," tweeted external affairs ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin.
