According to Reuters, a spokesman for India's foreign ministry said New Delhi was in dialogue with Washington to ensure the supply of raw materials for vaccine production. This incidentally was also discussed during Dr. Jaishankar’s recently concluded visit to Washington where he met with senior US offiicials, including US secretary of state Antony Blinken and defence secretary Lloyd Austin. According to a statement by GoI, "It is in our mutual interest to combat the global pandemic by expediting vaccination efforts."
Lauding the recent decision taken by Washington on the vaccine distribution, Indian ambassador to the US Taranjit Singh Sandhu told the media, "President Biden has announced the Global Allocation Plan of 25 million vaccines. This is the first tranche out of a total of 80 million vaccines announced earlier by the United States. The distribution is under two categories - A, through the Covaxin initiative, and B, directly to neighbours and partner countries."
According to Sandhu, "Now, India will figure in both categories, and will get vaccines as per allocation under COVAX and direct supply. So first would be the COVAX initiative in which India is included in Asia. Second, through direct supply to neighbours and partner countries, that includes India, Korea, Canada and Mexico.”
