New Delhi, Nov 28 (ANI): Union Foreign Minister, Salman Khurshid met the stressed family members of sailors abducted by Somali pirates and assured them that the government is making untiring efforts to find a solution to get those sailors released. Khurshid also said they cannot even seek the help of Somalia because of their internal problems. The pirates, who hijacked the United Arab Emirates (UAE)-owned MT Royal Grace in March, have set November 30 as the deadline for their demands to be met, failing which they have threatened to kill the 17 Indian sailors on board the ship.
