Sydney [Australia], May 14 (ANI): The University of New South Wales' (UNSW) library building in Sydney lit up with Indian tricolour on Friday in solidarity with India, Indian students, faculty and staff, as the country fights against the unprecedented COVID-19 situation.

"UNSW library building, Sydney, lit up in solidarity with India, Indian students, faculty and staff," said Australian High Commissioner Barry O Farrell.

The university also posted a picture of the main library tower, which could be seen illuminated with the Indian flag along with a message of 'stay strong India'.

"We've illuminated our main library tower in support of our Indian students and friends (and others around the world) who are suffering from or affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope you all stay safe, stay well, stay strong!", the university tweeted.

The UNSW is an Australian public university with its largest campus in the Sydney suburb of Kensington.
