World Bank President David Malpass and French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire on Tuesday discussed COVID-19 vaccine deployment, debt relief and other aid for low income countries, including Chad and Sudan, the bank said in a statement.
Malpass and Le Maire discussed France's support for Sudan as it clears arrears with international financial institutions and France's growing contributions to the International Development Association, the World Bank's fund for the poorest countries.
