Talks with the Indian government continue

Some resentment too
Borla also expressed some displeasure at not getting the vaccine approval. Said- We had applied for vaccine approval several months ago. Unfortunately, no decision on this has been made so far. However, at the moment we are in direct contact with the Government of India, talking to them. This biggest Pfizer official said – We are standing with India in this fight against the epidemic.
