“I would like to propose that the leadership of SAARC nations chalks out a strong strategy to fight coronavirus we cold discuss via video confessing way to keep our citizens healthy. together we can set an example to the world and contribute to a healthier.”
Narendra Modi tweeted.
The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation, popularly known as SAARC is the regional intergovernmental organisation and geopolitical union of state in South Asia. Its members are Afghanistan, Bhutan, Bangladesh, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Its meeting is held annually and recently the 20th SAARC summit held through video conferencing and the main focus of the leaders of the nation was on the worldwide spread of COVID19. The meeting saw Mr Modi's proposal for a COVID19 emergency fund in which India will contribute 10 million dollars.
Many members of SAARC tweet such as pm of Nepal, KP Sharma Oli tweeted that,” I welcome the idea advanced by prime minister Modiji @narendramodi for chalking out a strong strategy by the leadership of the SAARC nations to fight Coronavirus. My Government is ready to work closely with SAARC. Member states to protect our citizens from the deadly disease.”, president of Sri Lanka – Gotabaya Rajapaksa tweeted – “Thank You for the great initiative Shri @narendramodi. #LKA is ready to join the discussion & best practices and to learn from other #SAARC members. Let’s unite in solidarity during these trying times and keep our citizens safe. Then Ibrahim Mohamed Solih tweeted Thank you PM @narendramodi for taking the initiative on the important endeavour. Covid -19 requires collective effort to defeat it. The Maldives Welcomes this proposal and would fully support such regional efforts.
“This is what we call leadership, as a member of this region, we must come together in such times. Smaller economics are hit harder, so we must coordinate. With your leadership, I have no drought we will see the immediate and impactful outcome. Looking forward to the video conference.” The pm of Bhutan tweeted.
Now the main problem is with Pakistan and Afghanistan because they shared the borders with one of the most affected countries that are Iran. It is the biggest challenge For Pakistan and Afghanistan to stop the spread of corona. The island nations the Maldives and Sri Lanka worried on the economic aspects as tourism is the main source of their economy. India also losses RS.200 crore in economic aspects (mainly in tourism). The thing is that all the countries are trying to fight from coronavirus but at the same time Pakistan is talking about the sortation of normalcy in the Kashmir valley. Coronavirus has spread in almost 116 countries. SAARC members need to take initiative action, as we seeing patient has also increased up to 125 in India and recently 130 people lose their life in Iran in one day. SAARC member seems to be willing to try to put politics and other issues aside when dealing with pandemics that confronts all.
