Thank You PM Nawaz Sharif: PM Narendra Modi


A Pakistan navy vessel evacuated eleven Indians from Yemen who arrived in Delhi by a special plane of Pakistan Air Force.

Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit along with Joint Secretary in External Affairs Ministry responsible for States division Gopal Baglay were at the airport to welcome the Indian nationals.

The Indians were among 182 people, including 36 foreigners, who were brought to Pakistan's port city of Karachi after being evacuated from Al Mukallah in Yemen. After their arrival in Karachi, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had offered a special plan to ferry them to Delhi, an offer which was accepted by India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi thanked his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif for the ‘humanitarian gesture’ and remarked that ‘service to humanity knows no borders’.

"I welcome our 11 citizens who've returned from Yemen with assistance from Pakistan. Thank you Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for your humanitarian gesture," Modi tweeted.

"Service to humanity knows no borders. Glad we helped many countries in evacuation from Yemen," he added.
