India and New Zealand have long had friendly and close ties. In 1952, the two nations formally established diplomatic ties.

About Foot & Mouth Disease:

Foot and mouth disease (FMD) is a serious, highly contagious viral disease that affects livestock and is very expensive to treat. Cattle, swine, sheep, goats, and other ruminants with cloven hooves are all affected by the disease. It is a transboundary animal disease (TAD) that has a significant impact on livestock production and interferes with both domestic and global trade in animals and animal products.

According to estimates, the disease is present in 77% of the world's livestock, primarily in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, as well as a small portion of South America. Its prevention is based on, among other things, the implementation of efficient surveillance and the presence of early detection and warning systems.
