New Delhi, June 10, 2017: India has started to worry about its more than 6,30,000 nationals living in Qatar ever since the four major Arab countries closed sea, air and land links with Qatar. The Indian nationals have been asked to stay alerted by an advisory in the Indian embassy in Doha as the government is monitoring the developments.

“The Embassy of India is monitoring the situation closely and is in touch with the Qatari authorities to ensure the safety and security of Indian nationals in Qatar,” an official statement recorded.

There exist only one land route from Qatar to Saudi Arabia, which is used for transportation of essential commodities. The route is now closed after Qatar’s diplomatic isolation by Saudi Arabia-led allies. Qatar being one of the richest countries in the world is likely to put its substantial resources to maintain its populace. Sources said, There should be no immediate sense of panic or shortage as Qatar is well stocked, as mentioned in a report in TOI.

Reports have suggested that the Indian government has offered to send in supplies. Sources said the Indian government is prepared for relief operations in future. The greatest danger is for people to fall prey to rumors.
