Bangladesh has handed over medical items related to Covid-19 pandemic to Nepal as a gesture of friendship.

The foreign ministry said Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen handed over the PPE, Remdesivir injection, hand sanitiser and floor cleaner to Ambassador of Nepal to Bangladesh Dr Banshidhar Mishra on Tuesday.

This was also in the spirit of solidarity with the people of Nepal in their fight against coronavirus under the SAARC COVID-19 Emergency Cooperation.

“This will further strengthen the bilateral relations between the two countries,” said the foreign ministry in a statement.
