China Allows Stranded Sri Lankan Students To Return, Continues To Remain Silent On Indians


Beijing : Thousands of international students from India and other countries studying in Chinese universities have been unable to return to China since March last year due to travel restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the pandemic which broke out in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in 2019.

China has informed Sri Lanka that it will permit some of its students, stranded at home for over two years following Beijing's strict COVID visa ban, to return, even as it continues to remain silent on allowing over 23,000 Indian students to re-join their studies.
