International Desk: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Erdern has now commented on the controversy over the need and supply of oxygen by the New Zealand Embassy in India. Jacinda Erdern said the New Zealand embassy had tweeted a request for oxygen to a local staff because he was ill. However, the Prime Minister of New Zealand said that the authorities should have adopted some other means to demand oxygen. Jacinda Erdern said that our High Commission has apologized for the tweet, in such cases the official medium should be used only. On the other hand, according to Radio New Zealand, the New Zealand Foreign Ministry has regretted the dispute with the Indian government.
The New Zealand Foreign Ministry said that the safety, health and care of the staff at its embassy in India is a priority of the government. New Zealand's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that some local staff at the High Commission had been infected with Kovid and one of them was in poor condition, so oxygen was needed. The statement also said that no New Zealand diplomat Kovid has been infected. The High Commission of New Zealand is not open to the public due to the Korana infection.
Treatment has been arranged within the campus itself if ill. Please tell that the New Zealand High Commission had tweeted on social media to demand oxygen, there was a lot of controversy about it. In fact, the Embassy had demanded oxygen from the Congress leader after which the cylinders were transported to the New Zealand Embassy. Earlier, members of the Youth Congress had also delivered a cylinder of oxygen to the Embassy of the Philippines.
