NEW DELHI, Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- India said on Tuesday that all its nationals "are safe" in Thailand and it has also been monitoring the situation in that country in the wake of the political turmoil there.
The Indian External Affairs Ministry said that though there have been violent clashes by anti-government protesters demanding the resignation of Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, all Indian nationals are safe and updates for travelers to that country are on the Embassy website.
Thailand is a popular tourist destination for Indians.
At least four people have died since the South East nation plunged into political crisis some nine days back as demonstrators continue to demand the replacement of the Thai government with an unelected "People's Council", alleging Yingluck government is controlled by her brother and ousted former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
The Thai prime minister has refused to step down after surviving a "no confidence" vote in the Parliament.
