COVID-19: Tunisian military fly out 25 stranded Indians

The Tunisian army has secretly repatriated 25 Indian nationals stranded in the North African country amid covid-19 pandemic, Tribune India reports.

The group of 25 Indians touched down at Gandhi International Airport in Delhi on a special military aircraft on Saturday, the media says.

The plane was on its way to bring back home Tunisian citizens stranded in India, Vietnam and Thailand, and as a special gesture, the authorities allowed the airlifting of the Indian nationals.

Sixteen Tunisians were flown out of India, according to Tunisian ambassador to India, Nejmeddine Lakhal.

“Solidarity between our countries has always been at the top. Helping each other and in particular in difficult times, as it happened during the evacuation of Indian citizens from Libya, is a very normal situation for us. I am extremely happy that our Indian friends could make it back to their homeland,” Lakhal said as he lauded the collaboration between the two countries.
