Trudeau, who made a telephone call to the prime minister, said that if the world managed to conquer Covid-19, it would be significantly because of India's tremendous pharmaceutical capacity and Modi's leadership in sharing this capacity with the world, according to a Prime Minister's Office (PMO) statement.
