New Delhi: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Saturday (February 20, 2021) handed over 1 lakh additional doses of the made-in-India COVID-19 vaccine to the Maldives. The Maldives Foreign Minister Abdulla Shahid and Health Minister Ahmed Naseem received the coronavirus vaccine.

After handing over the vaccines, EAM Jaishankar took to his official Twitter account and expressed, “From the people of India to the people of Maldives.”

The Maldives Health Minister Ahmed Naseem thanked the people of India for a ‘generous gift’ and said, “Together, we will overcome COVID-19. Together, we will succeed.”

S Jaishankar also interacted with Abdulla Shahid and said that ‘an extraordinarily deep partnership’ between India and the Maldives was reaffirmed during the meeting.

“Comprehensive talks with Maldives FM Abdulla Shahid. Deeply appreciate our close cooperation during Covid. Agreed to look beyond at post-pandemic economic recovery,” Jaishankar tweeted.

Jaishankar also witnessed the exchange of agreements on a wide range of domains India and the Madlvies are working on together including the fish processing, public broadcasting, sustainable urban development, road infrastructure and housing. 

Jaishankar arrived in the Maldives on the first leg of his two-nation tour that also includes Mauritius.

India, notably, had provided 1,00,000 doses of Covisheild COVID-19 vaccine in January to the Maldives as part of the country’s grant assistance. India has also provided COVID-19 vaccines to several other countries.
