The Government of Nepal has expressed gratitude to the US for taking the decision to provide COVID-19 vaccines to Nepal.

The US has detailed plans to donate 7 million doses of anti-COVID vaccine to Nepal and other Asian countries.

Other countries listed as recipients are India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, the Maldives, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos, Papua New Guinea, Taiwan and the Pacific Islands.

The US on Thursday said on the fact sheet that it will donate at least 80 million doses of vaccine globally by the end of June as Washington aims to close the gap with Beijing in vaccine diplomacy.

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli wrote on Twitter, "We welcome the US decision to provide COVID-19 vaccines to Nepal. Thank you for responding to our appeal for these precious life-saving doses! Nepal and Nepali people remain grateful. This reaffirms the strength of Nepal-US friendship."
