In a rare moment of cooperation Indian and Pakistani defence forces worked together to bring home citizens from both nations. Both countries put aside strained bilateral ties and border disputes in order to bring home their stranded citizens. India’s efforts have so far saved 2,300 people. Out of the 800 rescued today over 200 were nationals of other countries. 23 countries have asked India to help in their efforts to bring their citizens home.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj confirmed that the Indian Navy evacuated 3 Pakistani nationals from Hodeida while Pakistan helped rescue 11 Indians from Al Mukalla.

This is definitely a moment of pride for both nations and shows us what we can achieve when we put the guns away and fight to create a better world for each other.
