Hungary has delivered 41,000 doses of the Pfizer COVID vaccine to Transcarpathia, in the west of Ukraine, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in a video message posted on Facebook on Tuesday.
"We hope that all of Europe will realize, with time, that the focus must be on peace rather than measures that escalate, that prolong the war," Szijjártó said.
Speaking on the tarmac at Liszt Ferenc International, Szijjártó said he is traveling to Argentina, where economic and diplomatic talks will take place, then to Peru, to foster bilateral cooperation.
He will return to Europe on Friday to participate in an extraordinary meeting of European Union energy ministers in Brussels.
