Hungary is donating 150,000 jabs of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine to Ecuador, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in a post on Facebook on Wednesday, according to a report by Hungarian news agency MTI.
The donation was made at the request of the government of Ecuador, Szijjártó said.
He added that Hungary has a "close cooperation" with Ecuador and is the only Central European country with an embassy there.
"Our economic cooperation has expanded dynamically in the recent period, too, as ever more Hungarian companies find a place on the Ecuadorian market and, using it as a springboard, expand further onto markets in Latin America," he said.
