New Delhi, July 27: Minister of State for External Affairs V.K. Singh would visit Badush near Mosul which was recently freed from Islamic State control to trace the 39 missing Indians, the Ministry of External Affairs said on Thursday.
The Iraqi Foreign Minister assured cooperation in all earnestness from the Iraqi side and informed the External Affairs Minister of the efforts being undertaken,” the statement said.
External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj requested the Iraqi Minister to facilitate the visit of Singh to Badush.
The development comes hours after when Swaraj told the Rajya Sabha that she would not declare the 39 missing Indians dead until she has any solid proof to that effect.
