New Delhi, January 23
The US State Department has applauded India’s role in global health which also came in for substantial praise from Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
The South and Central Asia section of the US State Department called India a “true friend” for sharing millions of doses of Covid vaccine in South Asia.
“India is a true friend using its pharma to help the global community,” it said in a social media post. Referencing US President Joe Biden’s observation during his inaugural speech about the US being a strong and trusted partner for peace and security, it said this commitment was also for all US’ friends in South and Central Asia. Bolsonaro thanked India for supplying Covid vaccines to his country and shared on social media an illustration of Lord Hanuman bringing “Sanjivani booti” from India to Brazil. — TNS
