The foreign minister said Hungary has “done everything in its political and diplomatic power” to procure vaccine from China next to its other sources.
Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, told public broadcaster Kossuth Radio that an agreement has already been drafted, to be signed when the drug authority allows the use of the Chinese vaccine, just as it was with the Russian and British vaccines.
The minister said tens of millions of people have already been vaccinated in China and this vaccine had also been used for mass inoculation in the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
Minister Szijjártó said he had talked to the foreign ministers of both countries, who said the results were satisfactory, and Hungarian experts also spent days in China studying the production site.According to the report, the Chinese technology and the expertise of the people involved in the manufacturing, development and research is beyond reproach, he said.
