SOUTH SUDAN BEGINS TO RECEIVE COVID VACCINE SHIPMENTS FROM INDIA

In a welcome bit of good news for Africa’s youngest country, South Sudan has begun to receive COVID-19 vaccine relief, as they brace to deal with a second wave of the coronavirus that has infiltrated their borders.

On Thursday, March 25, South Sudan started receiving shipments of the COVID vaccine from India, a country which has jumped to the forefront in production of the vaccine and has already become a key supplier to 70 countries around the world.

India has a history of peaceful relations with South Sudan, and was the first Asian country to establish a consulate in Juba, South Sudan’s capital city, following the peace agreement in 2007. India has pledged to continue its ongoing support of agricultural and health initiatives in South Sudan, according to the Ambassador and Deputy Permanent Representative of India’s Mission to the UN, Nagaraj Naidu.

In a recent United Nations Security Council meeting, the ambassador reiterated India’s commitment to stand in solidarity with South Sudan toward efforts to achieve peace, progress and prosperity in the region.
