The State Department continued: "Do not recognize Covishield as a discriminatory policy. EAM raised this question to its British counterparts. Certain guarantees have been made to resolve the matter as soon as possible. "

 Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar raised this issue in a meeting with the British Foreign Minister on Tuesday, calling for an "early resolution" of the quarantine issue.
