Sources added that China had earlier refused to supply more vaccines to India, than what it is being supplied, citing capacity constraints and commitments to other countries.

"Problems have been taken care of. Our delegation had gone. They have agreed for the additional supplies. We are comfortable on that issue. But still much more is needed as we would like to take more stocks (JE vaccine). We are in continuous dialogue with them," Union health minister JP Nadda said.

Nadda said both countries need to discuss and deliberate on health issues before Prime Minister Narendra Modi's upcoming visit to Beijing.

PM Modi is expected to visit China around May-June. Trade of pharmaceuticals between the two countries is going to be one of the key issues on the agenda.
