India's ban on Covid-19 vaccine export won’t be applicable for Bangladesh: Momen

India's Ministry of External Affairs has confirmed that the ban on Covid-19 vaccine export will not be applicable for Bangladesh, Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen has said.

"As the deal was done on the basis of discussion at the highest level -- between Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Indian Premier Narendra Modi, no ban will be applicable for us. So, there is no reason for us to worry," he told reporters at a briefing at the Foreign Service Academy.
