India contacted countries around the world at CAA, NRC: MEA

NEW DELHI: India has communicated with countries around the world on the issues of the new citizenship law and the proposed National Registry of Citizens, the Foreign Ministry said Thursday.

We communicate with countries around the world about the Citizenship Amendment Act and he said spokesman Raveesh Kumar at a press conference.
