In this tweet, referring to PM Narendra Modi also wrote that, “This gesture of Saudi Arabia signifies the close friendship and warmth between the leadership of Saudi Arabia and PM Modi.”
Significantly, last month, due to lack of oxygen in India, there were a lot of deaths. Then Saudi Arabia sent an 80-tonne liquid oxygen tanker to India, on which the video of the Saudi flag being covered with reliance stickers became very viral on social media.
Let me tell you that in its fight against Corona epidemic, India has turned to OPEC countries, especially Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and Kuwait for sourcing medical oxygen.
Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had discussions with Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdul Aziz, UAE Industries Minister Sultan Al Jaber and Qatar’s Energy Minister Saad Sherida Al-Kabi for the supply of medical, oxygen and containers.
While daily cases of corona virus infection have come down from 4 lakhs to 1.73 lakhs, the death toll is not taking the name of decrease. Officially recorded daily deaths are currently over 3,617.
