India is boosting its production of Covid-19 vaccine, but there is no word yet when it can resume its export of the jabs to Bangladesh, the country’s high commissioner in Dhaka said on Sunday.
“We hope the problem will be resolved soon,” High Commissioner Vikram Doraiswami told reporters after a meeting with Awami Jubo League Chairman Fazle Shams Parash at the central office of Awami League.
The Indian envoy said: "We are increasing corona vaccine production. The corona situation in India is still at a dangerous stage. So we are not yet able to say the exact time of giving corona vaccine to Bangladesh,"
Parash recalled India’s crucial help during the 1971 Liberation War and said India has always been by Bangladesh side in everything.
“India is our friend of bad days and partner in good days as well,” he said.
Parash said that he discussed with the Indian envoy the corona and the current situation in India.
