MTI-Hungary Today 2020.06.02.

Hungary took delivery of a donation of protective visors and hand sanitizers from Turkey on Tuesday.

Turkish businesses donated 50,000 visors, 16,000 hand sanitizers and 20,000 hand sanitizers with high alcohol content to Hungary, Saut Karakus, deputy head of the Turkish-Hungarian chapter of Turkey’s Foreign Economic Relations Board (DEIK), which organised the donation, said when handing over the accessories in Budapest.

Foreign ministry state secretary Levente Magyar said most of the help Hungary had received during the novel coronavirus pandemic had come from the East, adding that nearly all Turkic countries had provided assistance.

Ahmet Akif Oktay, Turkey’s ambassador to Hungary, said: “By implementing effective measures, Turkey and Hungary have managed to keep the death toll and the damage from the pandemic low.”
