Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj will meet the Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari today and the main point of discussion will be the 39 Indians who went missing after they were kidnapped in 2014. Sushma Swaraj will most probably face an offensive by the Congress in the Parliament – a motion stating that she tried to misguide the nation and the families of the missing people. These Indians who were labourers were taken hostages when city of Mosul was taken over by ISIS in 2014.
Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh was sent to Iraq once Mosul was relieved from ISIS and it was informed to the families that the Indians were earlier kept in a construction site of a hospital and later move to a jail in Badush.
