Hours after US President Donald Trump thanked PM Modi for sending hydroxychloroquine to the US in times of need, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said times like these bring friends closer.
In a tweet in response to Trump’s note of thanks, PM Modi said, Fully agree with you President @realDonaldTrump Times like these bring friends closer. The India-US partnership is stronger than ever. India shall do everything possible to help humanity’s fight against COVID-19. We shall win this together.
Earlier, Donald Trump said, Extraordinary times require even closer cooperation between friends. Thank you, India and the Indian people for the decision on HCQ. Will not be forgotten! Thank you Prime Minister @NarendraModi for your strong leadership in helping not just India, but humanity, in this fight!
On Wednesday, Trump had threatened India with retaliation and said if India doesn’t release the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine for the United States, we will have to face retaliation.
