The foreign minister said Hungary is sending 11,700 doses of coronavirus vaccine to Montenegro.
Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said that due to the war in Ukraine there is much less talk about the pandemic nowadays but “coronavirus is still with us” and several countries are facing difficulties in access to vaccines. Some countries have requested assistance from Hungary and “we help those we can”, he said. The minister noted that the government had sent 41,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine to Transcarpathia last week. Minister Szijjártó said it is Hungary’s vested interest that there should be peace, stability and development in the Western Balkans, adding that the current vaccine shipment might contribute to that.
