India has been approached by several countries to procure them with the COVID-19 vaccines. And the External Affairs Minister of India, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar has already started the process of flying the vaccinations to other countries.
In the weekend, the Made in India vaccines landed in the South African city of Johannesburg through India’s Vaccine Maitri initiative and the cabinet minister tweeted about the same. Upon hearing this good news, former England cricketer Kevin Pieterson tweeted about India’s generosity in times of the coronavirus crisis.
Immediately, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter and replied to Kevin Pieterson’s tweet. The world leader thanked the cricketer for his affection towards the ‘beloved country’ of India. Calling the world as a ‘family’, read the tweet thread:
Glad to see your affection towards India. 🙂
We believe that the world is our family and want to play our role in strengthening the fight against COVID-19. https://t.co/zwpB3CNxLG
