India has reached out to countries across the world on the issues of the new citizenship law and the proposed National Register of Citizens, the Ministry of External Affairs said on Thursday (January 2).

“We did reach out to countries across the globe on Citizenship Amendment Act and the NRC,” MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said at a media briefing.

“We emphasised that the Act (CAA) just expedites acquiring of citizenship to persecuted minorities. It does not change the basic structure of Constitution,” he said.
