Missionaries of Charity Sister Mary Sally, who was evacuated from conflict-torn Yemen earlier this year by the Indian government, today met External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in Vatican City.

“A special guest in Rome! Sister Sally, who was evacuated out of Yemen by the Govt meets EAM @SushmaSwaraj,” External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted. Union Food Processing Industries Minister Harsimrat Kaur, who is part of the Indian delegation, and Sister Mary Prema Pierick, Superior general of the Missionaries of Charity, was also present on the occasion.

Sister Sally, the Indian mother superior of an aid home in Aden, where four nuns were killed and an Indian priest was kidnapped by gunmen, was evacuated from Yemen in March. Swaraj represented India at the canonisation ceremony of Mother Teresa at a mass in St Peter’s square here presided over by Pope Francis in the presence of over 100,000 pilgrims. Swaraj arrived here earlier along with 12 others that included two state-level delegations from Delhi and West Bengal led by Chief Ministers Arvind Kejriwal and Mamata Banerjee respectively.
