Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said the "professional" and "pragmatic" operation of the World Health Organisation (WHO) must be preserved and "overpoliticization" avoided at the 75th World Health Assembly in Geneva on Monday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Szijjártó pointed to the need for the WHO's expertise in the fight against the spread of monkeypox.

He noted that Hungary had donated 7 million jabs of coronavirus vaccine to countries in need, so far.
