CANADA NEWS: Canada thanks India for helping the world in the Covid war

This was conveyed by Canadian Foreign Minister François-Philippe Champagne to his Indian counterpart Foreign Minister Jaishankar as India joined, for the first time, the Canadian-led Covid-19 Ministerial Strategy (MCGC).

The Canadian government has emphasized India’s “critical role” in addressing the global demand for drugs needed to combat the Covid-19 epidemic.

This was conveyed by Canadian Foreign Minister François-Philippe Champagne to his Indian counterpart Foreign Minister Jaishankar as India joined, for the first time, the Canadian-led Covid-19 Ministerial Strategy (MCGC).

A readout released by Global Affairs Canada, the country’s foreign ministry, said Champagne “welcomed” India’s participation in the MCGC “looking at recent developments in India and emphasizing India’s important role in addressing Covid-19 vaccine and drug needs.”

Indian authorities have said that the role played by the country in the outbreak of the epidemic underscores the reliability of medical care in times of disaster. In May this year, India sent shipments of hydroxychloroquine to Canada, a total of five million pills, and both ministers were involved in those negotiations at the time.

Other nations that participated in the 11th edition of the visible dialogue to work together to address the coronavirus problem were Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

The statement noted that the MCGC was “an important forum” especially for growing cases in several countries around the world, including Canada, which recorded the highest number of infection cases in recent days, counting another 2,761 cases to take a total of Wednesday night to 247,439.

The ministers at the meeting “reaffirmed their commitment to ensure equitable access to Covid-19 vaccine”, according to the release.

Among the MCGC’s objectives are to focus on “the importance of multidisciplinary research and development and to ensure equal access to vaccines in developing countries and health systems at risk” and “the continuing need for unity and international participation in responding to Covid-19 economic outcomes.”

In a previous release, Global Affairs Canada stated that the MCGC “has proven itself to be an important forum for discussing, guiding and collaborating on global challenges related to COVID-19 and beyond in a” world “increasingly dependent on trust, speed and complexity”.
