Italian Ambassador to Moscow Giorgio Starace said that the country would not recognize the Russian Sputnik V vaccine without the consent of the European Union (EU), however, he would maximally assist and assist in speeding up this process. RIA News…
The diplomat stressed that there is no talk of recognition at the national level yet, since Italy is closely integrated into the European Union and respects the regulatory procedures in the community, therefore, such a path as, for example, in Hungary is excluded.
“Of course, Italy will play a role in technical advice. The decision is made by specialized institutions, but we want the process to accelerate. The faster he goes, the better, ”concluded Starace.
Earlier, the World Health Organization (WHO) said it could approve the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine by the end of the year, if the necessary legal documents are signed in the coming days. Sumiya Swaminathan, a senior researcher at WHO, spoke about this. She noted that the exact dates of the inspections are still unknown. The WHO expects that they will happen in the near future.
