India gifted a 10 tonne consignment of essential life saving medicines to Sri Lanka, in view of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. These medicines have been requested by Government of Sri Lanka. The consignment was brought to Sri Lanka by an Air India Special Charter flight today. This is yet another manifestation of India’s unwavering commitment to stand with Sri Lanka, in rain and in shine. Despite its own domestic challenges and constraints, India has always believed in sharing its resources and expertise with its friends and partners. It may also be recalled that at the initiative of Prime Minister of India, a SAARC Leaders Video Conference was held on 15 March 2020 to discuss ways to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. India also pledged US$ 10 million to the SAARC COVID-19 Emergency Fund. Subsequently, a Video Conference of health professionals in SAARC countries was held on 26 March 2020.

    Mind your own business India. We will get our medicines from China. Chinese medicines are much superior quality than inferior Indian medicines.

    Trump has threatened India with "retaliation" if US does not get certain medicines he has asked for. India has stated it will divide based on needs of each nation, in addition to satifying its own needs. Selfish Trump!

    See the comments from some of the ungrateful Sri Lankans towards India. This is the basic SL cultural problem. Racism and Racism. It's impossible to eradicate it from the DNA. DNA makes us who we are. This is clearly illustrated in the book written by Robert Plomin - Blueprint - How DNA makes us who we are.
