Union Minister says India in talks with Kuwait to secure release of 30 Indian nurses

New Delhi: The Minister of State for External Affairs, V Muraleedharan, announced on Monday that discussions with Kuwaiti authorities have been initiated to secure the release of 30 Indian nurses, 19 of whom are from Kerala, currently in detention in Kuwait.

Talks have reached the highest levels between India and Kuwait as they seek to resolve the situation arising from technical issues concerning the clinic's license where the nurses were employed.

The Kuwait Manpower Committee recently apprehended a group of 60 nurses from a private clinic in Kuwait, citing a lack of required documentation. This group included 30 Indian nurses, with 19 of them hailing from Kerala. Many of these Malayali nurses are reported to have infants.

In response to concerns about the infants, Minister Muraleedharan stated, "Among the nurses who have young kids who are being breastfed, we have already made arrangements for them to be fed. Likewise, the Indian Embassy officials are in talks with the Kuwaiti authorities to ensure their prompt release."

Relatives of the detained nurses have claimed that all necessary documents, including visas, were in order. They assert that the issue at hand stems from a dispute between the hospital owner and their sponsor.

This incident has sparked international concern, with both Indian and Kuwaiti authorities working diligently to find a resolution. The situation remains fluid, and families anxiously await the safe return of their loved ones as diplomatic efforts continue to unfold.
