Bangladesh is joining an alliance-led by China to prevent the coronavirus infection.
Bangladesh asked vaccines from China within short time and they responded positively.
Foreign Affairs Minister Dr A K Abdul Momen said this in a press briefing after holding a virtual meeting of six counties of the alliance on Tuesday (April 26).
He said, “A storage will be set up in South Asia and China to get Covid-19 emergency medical supplies. Member countries can take help from there whenever they need it. In addition, Post Covid-19 Poverty Alleviation Center and E-Commerce Forum will be formed to keep the business running.”
The Foreign Minister said, “A joint virtual meeting of the Foreign Ministers of the member counties was held today to conduct activities against Covid-19. China has hosted it. The talks were held among Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.”
Momen said, “The meeting decided to set up a Covid Emergency Medical Facility comprising China and South Asia. Those who will need will get medical support from here.”
