Panaji, July 30 IANS | 3 months ago

Goa's Commission for Non Resident Indian (NRI) Affairs Wednesday advised Goan youngsters against pursuing overseas jobs based in Iraq.


A statement issued by NRI Affairs Director U.D. Kamat said the advisory had been issued on the basis of enquiries made with the Indian embassy in Baghdad.

"The commissioner for NRI Affairs has received a few inquiries from the Goan youth who have job offers in hand to work in Iraq. Hence, inquiries were made with the Embassy of India in Baghdad and it has clarified that in view of the security situation prevailing in Iraq, it is advisable to avoid travelling to Iraq," Kamat said.

Forty-six Indian nurses, trapped due to the ongoing conflict in Iraq, were rescued and brought back to India recently.

The NRI commission set up by the Goa government looks after the affairs of Goa's expat community.
