“The entire world is facing today an unprecedented challenge while spreading of COVID19 beyond control is a threat to the entire humanity. Our success in fighting COVID19 pandemic depends on our actions and moves, but it largely depends also on the readiness of our international partners to help us. I am, therefore, very grateful to the EU, China, Norway, Switzerland and UN agencies for having expressed solidarity with Serbia in this difficult moment by putting their own capacities at our disposal to help us in this joint fight and prevent potential consequences for our people’s health and our economy. Allow me to extend my special thanks to the Commissioner Varhelyi for his positive response to our request and willingness to reallocate as much as 93.4 million EUR of assistance to procurement and transport of medical equipment and supplies and also to our economy’s recovery”, the Minister of European Integration Jadranka Joksimović said.

Solidarity in action!’ Together we shall overcome this struggle”.
