9th group of Iranian nationals return home from India

Tehran, May 10, IRNA – The 9th group of Iranian nationals, students, and tourists who had to stay in India due to coronavirus outbreak and cancellation of flights returned to Iran on Sunday.

The Iranian nationals were transferred by plane.

A large number of products, including drug and medical equipment, donated by Indian Zoroastrians were also transported through this flight to Iran.

The Iranian nationals’ transfer has been made upon the Iranian embassy’s coordination and cooperation.
