“Due to the strength of India’s pharma sector, we were able to provide medicines to over 150 countries during COVID-lockdown era. Our vaccine production and delivery ability will help mankind in the same way”, assured PM Modi.

PM Modi gives out a strong message to Pakistan and China during BRICS address

During his speech, while Modi batted for reforms within international organisations such as the UN and the IMF, he sent out a strong message to both China and its ‘all-weather friend’ Pakistan from the platform. While it warned China with regards to its expansionist policy, without taking names PM Modi forewarned Pakistan for supporting terrorism.

In an apparent reference to China, Modi said that “India believes that to improve connectivity it is important to respect the other’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.” Moreover, while terming terrorism as the biggest challenge, Modi called on the BRICS country to act strictly against those countries who support terrorism and provide tactical support to the terror groups.
