New Delhi: – T.S. Tirumurti, permanent Representative of India in the United Nations, targeted China and Pakistan, without taking names. He said that while India is busy assisting other countries, in tiding over the Coronavirus Crisis, some countries are trying to exploit the crisis. These countries are spreading terrorism and implementing aggressive policies. Tirumurti was speaking at the meeting, on the occasion of the third anniversary of the India UN Development Fund.
Tirumurti said that India has always given priority to its allies. Tirumurti reminded that the Indian Prime Minister has repeatedly said that India looks at the Coronavirus crisis as an opportunity for India, to help other countries.
India has provided medical assistance to 150 countries in the world.
