India Raises Concerns With US Over New Rules For Foreign Students

Rule bars foreign students from remaining in US if their universities are not holding in-person classes

New Delhi:

India has conveyed its concerns to the United States about a new immigration order that could force a large number of Indian students to return home, the foreign ministry said on Thursday.

US President Donald Trump's administration issued a new rule this week that would bar foreign students from remaining in the United States if their universities are not holding in-person classes during the upcoming fall semester because of coronavirus.

"We have urged the US side that we need to keep in mind the role that educational exchanges and people to people relations have played in the development of our relations," foreign ministry
spokesman Anurag Srivastava told a news conference.
