Indian Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla has assured the people of Nepal that, once a COVID-19 vaccine is rolled out in India, meeting Nepal’s requirements would be a priority for India. Addressing a talk programme organised by Asian Institute of Diplomacy and International Affairs here today Shringla said India had at least five promising COVID-19 vaccine candidates at advanced stages of trials.

Together we will recover from the pandemic and together we will protect our people, he added.

We were too glad to extend assistance to Nepal in dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak, be it in equipment and supplies, or ensuring uninterrupted flow of goods across the border. I would like to emphasise our continued and uninterrupted commitment to Nepal, the Indian Foreign Secretary said.
