New Delhi: “Times like these bring friends closer,” said PM Narendra Modi after US President Donald Trump thanked him for clearing the export of anti-malarial drug, hydroxychloroquine, to the US.

The drug has been identified by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a potential treatment for the coronavirus and was touted repeatedly by Trump as a “game-changer”. India had earlier put a hold on its export, but later allowed it at Trump’s request.

“Fully agree with you, President Donald Trump. Times like these bring friends closer. The India-US partnership is stronger than ever. India shall do everything possible to help humanity’s fight against COVID-19. We shall win this together,” PM Narendra Modi stated in a tweet.

The reply came after Trump thanked him for giving a green signal for the export of the drug. “Thank you Prime Minister for your strong leadership in helping not just India, but humanity, in this fight!” he said.
