Union Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla on Tuesday criticized the United Kingdom’s new vaccine rules. Calling the decision ‘discriminatory’, Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla said that India was within its rights to take “reciprocal measures”.

“The non-recogition of Covishield is a discriminating policy & impacts our citizens travelling to the UK. The EAM has raised the issue strongly with the new UK foreign secretary. I am told that certain assurances have been given that this issue will be resolved”, Shringla told reporters.

Earlier in the day, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had also urged for an ‘early resolution’ of the COVID-19 quarantine issue.

As per the new rules, Indian travellers who have received both doses of Covishield will be considered unvaccinated and will have to undergo self-isolation for 10 days.
