“They wanted to see our Covid vaccine certificate, I showed them my phone and my son, from his wallet, produced a paper, which was folded, and said this is my certificate”, he said.
He smiled and added, “I looked at his paper…and I asked myself…this is where they are”. The listeners present at the event appreciated India’s all-digital operations during the Covid vaccination drive with their clappings.
The clip was first shared by Twitter user Arun Pudur with caption, “Dr S Jaishankar Minister of External Affairs, India, went to a restaurant with his son in the US and what happened next is hilarious”.
