“For our brothers”: Vučić handed over 4,680 doses of vaccines to Zaev (PHOTO)
The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, handed over 4,680 doses of Pajzer vaccines to the Prime Minister of Northern Macedonia, Zoran Zaev, at the Tabanovce border crossing.
Despite the cold weather and heavy snowfall, the President of Serbia and the Prime Minister of Northern Macedonia attended the handover of the first contingent of vaccines, which Serbia is donating to that country.
“It is in the first phase. I think that is good news for our brothers, “said Vucic.
Vučić said that the Pfizer company requested that the vaccines be handed over according to all procedures. This is half of the previously agreed around 8,000 doses that Serbia will provide to Northern Macedonia.
“Serbia has no other interests in this than friendship with the citizens of Northern Macedonia, we are not interested in anything but increasing economic exchange and living as best friends. This is a gift that you would also give us, because if the neighbor is not satisfied, you cannot be satisfied either “, said Vučić.
It was said at the gathering that immunization with these vaccines would begin in Northern Macedonia, and Zaev expressed gratitude and said that it was a “precious act” of solidarity between the state and the citizens of Serbia.
“It is a friendly outstretched hand, support and first aid to Macedonia, until the vaccines it ordered arrive,” Zaev said.
He said that this help is a tradition of the region, that the first hand of help is provided by the neighbors and a proof of great solidarity among traditionally friendly countries – Serbia and Northern Macedonia.
Vučić said that Serbia wanted to give the vaccine earlier, but that it had to fulfill very complex procedures in order not to suffer sanctions.
The vaccine was supposed to be delivered on February 11, but it was postponed then, because the consent of the company Pfizer, whose vaccines are being donated, was not obtained.
“I am happy that we were able to help our brothers and friends. “Serbia has no other interests, but shows friendship towards the citizens of Northern Macedonia,” Vucic said.
He pointed out that this is the most common gift that he is sure that Northern Macedonia would give to Serbia, and said in English that true friends know each other in trouble: “Friend in need is a friend indeed”.
Vučić pointed out that, according to the contracts with Pfizer, it is written that there is no right to alienate the vaccine and give it to someone else, but that these contractual problems have been solved.
10,000 dinars each for the participants who participated in the vaccination
Vučić pointed out that about 840,000 doses of vaccines have been used for 635,000 people in Serbia so far, thanked the health workers and announced an additional one-time aid of 10,000 dinars to those who participate in the vaccination.
When asked about vaccines from the EU, Vučić said that those vaccines will mean when they arrive, because people will have to be vaccinated during the summer as well.
He announced that 41,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine would arrive in Serbia on Monday, and that the arrival of the AstraZenek vaccine was expected in the coming days.
All workers who participated in the vaccination of the population will receive assistance in the amount of 10,000 dinars, the president announced and thanked all health workers who participated in the vaccination.
