FM: Support vaccinations not migration

International organizations should cease their hypocritical policy of supporting migration while not allowing full vaccine coverage.

The foreign minister said international organizations should cease their “hypocritical policy” of supporting migration while not allowing full vaccine coverage.

Attending the extraordinary general assembly of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the annual session of the International Council on International Migration (IOM) in Geneva on Monday, Péter Szijjártó said that authorization of vaccines across the board failed to materialize, while support was given for migration processes that would lead to the further rapid spread of Covid-19. “It’s high time international organizations abandon their hypocritical policies. Right now they don’t want to allow [the full spectrum of] vaccines while they are supporting migration,” a statement by the foreign ministry quoted Minister Szijjártó as saying. The question of which vaccines are licenced and which are not should not be political, the minister said. The more vaccines are available, the better people will be protected and the less likely the virus will spread, he added.
