G7 Summit 2021: India gets the support of French President Emmanuel Macron, ‘export ban removed from vaccine raw materials’

France with India in G7: French President Emmanuel Macron has appealed to the G7 members to lift the export ban on goods needed for vaccine production.

During the G-7 summit being held in Britain, French President Emmanuel Macron emphasized on helping the needy countries amid the corona virus epidemic. During this, he also questioned the export ban imposed by the member countries. In fact, the US had banned the raw material needed for the Oxford-AstraZeneca’s corona virus vaccine being made in India, which shocked the vaccine production.

Macron has said, ‘Many G7 member countries have imposed some export restrictions, which has stopped production in other countries and in some places production in middle-income countries which is important for the production of vaccines for poor countries. is. I will give just one example – India. According to reports, he has appealed for the ban to be lifted so that the Serum Institute of India can manufacture vaccines for the population of India and other poor countries, especially Africa.

America banned
The US had banned the export of raw materials used in the Covishield Coronavirus Vaccine. India had appealed to remove it, on which the spokesperson of the US State Department said that we will give priority to our citizens before fulfilling India’s request. At the same time, when America was suffering the most from Corona virus infection last year, India exported crores of tablets of hydroxychloroquine on the request of the then President Donald Trump.

Vaccine doses promised
Instead of helping in vaccine production in India, the US has promised to provide vaccine doses. President Joe Biden recently announced to share 80 million doses with the world, of which 75 percent of the additional doses will be supplied through the ‘Covax’ initiative, which is being run in collaboration with the United Nations. India is also included in the countries to which America is sending the vaccine.
