Will retaliate for not supplying medicine
Earlier, US President Donald Trump had addressed the media and said that if India does not supply hydroxychloroquine medicine, then we will retaliate. Hydroxychloroquine is the drug for malaria, of which India has been a major exporter. US President Donald Trump said that in this regard I spoke to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday morning and he has approved the supply of our hydroxychloroquine drug, which we appreciate. He further said that even if he does not supply the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine, it does not matter. But we will retaliate on this. After all, why won't we answer this?
What did India answer?
In fact, on the request of US President Donald Trump to supply hydroxychloroquine drug orders in the Corona crisis, India said that being a responsible country, we will help as much as we can. India has told the US that we will supply the Coronavirus patients and health care agents of hydroxychloroquine only after we have protected our 1.30 billion populations from the coronavirus epidemic. The Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) banned the export of this drug on 25 March.
