PM calls for mutual recognition of vaccine certificates amid UK row. On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for mutual recognition of vaccine certificates to ease international travel amid several countries adopting different sets of rules to allow foreigners to enter their territory in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.Modi made the remarks at the virtual Global COVID-19 summit for world leaders hosted by US president Joe Biden.
His address comes on a day when the UK government issued an updated international travel advisory to include AstraZeneca Covishield among the eligible COVID-19 vaccine formulations but kept India out of the 18 countries on an approved vaccinations list, requiring Indians to follow rules set out for "non-vaccinated" travellers."We also need to focus on addressing the pandemic’s economic effects. To that end, international travel should be made easier, through mutual recognition of vaccine certificates," Modi said.
The summit is being convened on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.Prime Minister Narendra Modi has commended Indian Diaspora for distinguishing itself across the world as he received a warm welcome from the community on his arrival here. He was greeted by groups of Indian Americans at the airport soon after his plane landed here Wednesday and later at the hotel where he had an interaction with the members of the community.Grateful to the Indian community in Washington DC for the warm welcome.
Our diaspora is our strength, Modi said in a tweet along with a set of pictures of his interaction with the Indian American CEOs.

However, due to the current COVID-19 situation, the prime minister is unlikely to have a large gathering or meeting with the diaspora.Modi has been popular among Indian Americans, who constitute more than 1.2 percent of the country's population
