New Delhi: On the eve of her visit to Russia, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday said that she will take up the death of two Indians in a fire tragedy and killing of another Indian in that country during her talks with the authorities. Swaraj on Saturday left for a two-nation three-day visit to Iran and Russia.

She will go to Moscow from Tehran on Sunday where she will participate in the annual Foreign Ministers' meeting of RIC (Russia, India and China).

 

"I am going to Moscow. The final investigation report into fire tragedy in which we lost Pooja Kallur and Krishma Bhonsle is on my agenda. I will also take up the matter of Yasir an Indian national from Srinagar who was killed in Kazan (Russia)," Swaraj said in a series of tweets.

Besides attending the RIC meeting, she is also expected to have a bilateral meet with her Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov in Moscow.
