UAE on Saturday sent 7 tonnes of medical aids to India. These aids are used for Indian health workers dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in India. The aid from the United Arab Emirates is part of India’s engagement with the region that is likely to lead to Delhi carrying out the massive evacuation of its nationals from the Gulf in the coming months.
The medical aid sent by the United Arab Emirates to India will approximately support 7,000 medical professionals as they could work to combat the virus.

Two weeks earlier India and UAE went on the Twitter war about the filthy comment made by Indian parliamentarian Tejasvi Surya in 2015. The Tweet mentioning Arab women disappointed most of the UAE people and it affected the relation between India and UAE. Top UAE officials condemn the Act and took twitter to write about it. Dr. Al Shoreka who is also director of the Human Rights Commission called other nations to voice against Muslim discrimination in India.
This Issues went of after PMO office of India and Indian Embassy assured that Pandemic comes after without any discrimination. The gesture by UAE was highly appreciated by the Indians.
Our two countries stand together in this pandemic as we have done on all other things. Thank you UAE. We are also happy that we have been able to send medicines to UAE to fight Covid-19 and more medical personnel should come to UAE soon. https://t.co/o9oohKGf9k— India in Dubai (@cgidubai) May 2, 2020
