While addressing the Agenda Aaj Tak 2022, Jaishankar said, “It is absolutely true and I have come to know that there is a lot of worry among the public, especially for those relatives whose family members are staying in a foreign land or for students who wanted to go to different countries for an emergency. And the visa issue is increasing in Western countries.” “At the ministerial level, I raised this issue with the US, UK, and Germany, whose Foreign Minister recently visited India,” he added.
Every week foreign countries are giving assurance that they are trying to improve it, Jaishankar said at the media conclave. (Source: Mint)
