He noted that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has instructed the Vietnamese Embassy in India to promptly confirm whether there are any Vietnamese victims in the accident. The embassy says there has been no information so far about any harm to Vietnamese citizens.

The same day, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh extended his condolences to Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj.
