Hungary will donate 80 ventilators to partner countries of NATO, at the request of the organization’s secretary-general, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Tuesday.
The biggest donation, 30 ventilators, will be supplied to Bosnia and Herzegovina to help that country’s hospitals in treating coronavirus patients in a serious condition, Szijjártó said on Facebook.
The security of the Western Balkans is highly important for Hungary which is why countries in the region can rely on Hungary’s continued help, he said.
Szijjártó noted that NATO had set up a fund one and a half years ago to provide assistance to its partner countries in their efforts to fight the pandemic.
