If the supply of vaccines in India increases, Bangladesh will also get it: Indian High Commissioner
Dhaka, July 18: If the coronavirus vaccine supply in India increases, Bangladesh will also be vaccinated, Indian High Commissioner Vikram Doraiswami told reporters on his way to India through the Akhaura International Immigration Checkpost in Brahmanbaria on Sunday (July 18) at 8 am.
Asked about the export of Indian vaccines to Bangladesh, the High Commissioner said, "I am going to India to know the status of vaccine supply. I will know about Bangladesh's chances of getting the vaccines if the supply in India increases. There will be an attempt to send vaccines to Bangladesh quickly. This will only be possible if the supply of jabs increases in India."
"Construction of Akhaura-Agartala railway is being delayed due to coronavirus. It will end by December. Road connectivity between Bangladesh and India has also improved. As a result, Bangladesh's exports have increased and India's exports have also increased. This is good for everyone," he said.
Akhaura Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Romana Akhter and Akhaura Police Officer-in-Charge (OC) Mizanur Rahman welcomed the High Commissioner at the check post.
