New Delhi:

India has reached out to countries across the world, including Bangladesh, on the issues of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and the proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC), the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said on Thursday.

"We have explained our position to the Bangladesh government on the NRC. We said this is an internal matter,” MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.  

"We did reach out to countries across the globe on Citizenship Amendment Act and the NRC," Kumar said at a media briefing.

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

On when the India-Japan summit, which was postponed following protests in Guwahati last month, will be held, Kumar said the dates for it will be finalised soon.
