New Delhi, July 2 (ANI): External Affairs Minister S.M Krishna has said that he would visit Australia soon.

Issues related to safety of Indian students in Australia are expected to top the agenda of discussions.

Addressing a news conference here on Wednesday, Krishna said that the dates of his visit are being worked out.

He further said that the government has asked its High Commission in Australia to check the veracity of a media report that around 27 Indian students had died there last year due to various causes.

The attacks on Indian students in recent weeks caused some diplomatic discomfort between the two countries and sparked angry protests in India. Australia's government condemned the attacks and is launching an inquiry into them.

Indian students believe that the attacks are "racist", while Australian authorities consider them crime-related. (ANI)
