India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday thanked Afghanistan for contributing to the Covid-19 emergency fund for SAARC countries, saying the challenge can be overcome by working together.
He thanked Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani for his contribution to the emergency fund.
“Thank you Afghanistan, for contributing $1 million to the Covid-19 Emergency Fund in solidarity with our South Asian neighbourhood. Tashakkur President Ashraf Ghani,” the Indian Prime Minister said.
Addressing Saarc leaders and representatives on March 15, Modi had proposed an emergency fund with an initial offer of $10 million from India.
