New Delhi [India] September 20 (ANI): India's Ambassador to Madagascar Abhay Kumar met young diplomats from Madagascar who are joining the first special course for diplomats in the Indian Ocean Region at the Sushma Swaraj Foreign Service Institute in New Delhi starting today.

Twelve diplomats from Comoros will also be joining the course. It is for the first time that a special course for the diplomats of the Indian Ocean Region countries viz. Sri Lanka, Maldives, Mauritius, Seychelles, Madagascar and Comoros is being organised at the Sushma Swaraj Foreign Service Institute.
