On the video of Pakistani students in China seeking help from India, Foreign Ministry spokesman Ravish Kumar said that we have not received any request from the Government of Pakistan regarding this. But, if such a situation arises and we have resources then we will consider it.

Remember that thousands of Pakistani students trapped in the Coronavirus-affected Wuhan region had pleaded with Prime Minister Imran Khan to evacuate them. The students cited India and asked them to be airlifted like Indian citizens.
