"They emphasised the importance of maintaining peace and security, with the most urgent priority being the repatriation of stranded people," an MEA release said here.

India has evacuated about 550 people, including 400 Indians. Indian Air Force planes have evacuated some Indian origin, Afghan politicians, and a few Nepali citizens.


Mr Modi also tweeted to share information about his tele talks with Ms Merkel and said both sides reiterated the commitment to strengthen the India-Germany Strategic Partnership.
