The Indian Embassy in Japan Wednesday met representatives of the 25,000-strong Indian community in the quake-hit country to ascertain their views about their plans and assistance needed by them, reported the Press Trust of India.

Indian Ambassador in Japan Alok Prasad had an interaction with the community representatives to know about their future plans and how the government could help them, said the report.

Indian External Affairs Minister S. M. Krishna said earlier the embassy will "do whatever is possible" to help the Indians and a helpline has been set up there for assistance.

Indian government said all Indians in Japan are reportedly safe.

A magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck northeastern Japan which also triggered massive tsunami on Friday, destroying thousands of houses, leaving thousands of people dead or missing.

The natural disaster also damaged the nation's nuclear plants in the quake-stricken areas, leading to radioactive leaks.
