The foreign minister has confirmed that Hungary has delivered 200,000 doses of Sinopharm vaccines each to Bosnia and Herzegovina and to Montenegro with a view to speeding up their inoculation campaigns and contributing to relaunching their economies.
Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said in Sarajevo that the Hungarian government had done everything in its power to procure as many vaccines as possible and had managed to quickly restart the country’s economy thanks to its inoculation campaign. Hungary’s shipment of Sinopharm vaccines is the largest either of the countries have received yet, he noted.
“Hungary and the Western Balkans have mutual dependence in economic and security areas, and also in stemming migration … This is one of the reasons we are happy to aid your pandemic protection,” Minister Szijjártó said. “We hope that a speedy inoculation campaign will contribute to a faster relaunch of the economy and boost stability, so you can curb waves of illegal migration.”
