No third party involved in India sending vaccines to Paraguay: MEA
New Delhi: The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday (April 8) dismissed media reports quoting Taiwan foreign minister Joseph Wu that Taipei's intervention led to Paraguay getting vaccines from India.
In response to a question, the MEA spokesperson, Arindam Bagchi, said, "I would like to confirm that no third party was involved in" New Delhi sending vaccines to the south American country.
India on the 26th of March sent one lakh doses of India-made COVID vaccines to the South American country. This came in the backdrop of a request from Paraguay during a telephonic conversation between its foreign minister and India's External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar.
