After former international cricketer Kevin Pietersen praised India for providing COVID-19 vaccines to South Africa, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he is glad to see the former England cricketer’s affection towards India.

PM Modi took to Twitter to state that India believes the world is their family after Pietersen had praised India’s ‘generosity and kindness’ in sending COVID-19 vaccines to South Africa.

“Glad to see your affection towards India. 🙂 We believe that the world is our family and want to play our role in strengthening the fight against COVID-19,” PM Modi wrote in response to Pietersen’s tweet.

PM Modi also said, “We believe that the world is our family” and want to play “our role in strengthening the fight against COVID-19”.

The former England batsman expressed his sentiments on Tuesday after External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar posted a picture of an aircraft that had landed with made-in-India vaccines in South Africa.

“In it together. Made in India vaccines land in Johannesburg, South Africa,” Jaishankar had tweeted.

Replying to this, Pietersen had tweeted, “Indian generosity and kindness grows more and more every single day. The beloved country!”
