North Macedonia on Wednesday received 30,000 doses of coronavirus vaccine donated by Turkey.

Health Minister Venko Filipce shared photos of the batch of China’s Sinovac vaccine doses on social media.

"I would like to thank the Republic of Turkey and President (Recep Tayyip) Erdogan once again for the support they offered and the rapid delivery of the promised amount, which is primarily especially for us," said Filipce.

Last Saturday, Erdogan received North Macedonia’s Prime Minister Zoran Zaev and Filipce in Istanbul.

Upon their return to North Macedonia, Zaev and Filipce announced that Erdogan promised 30,000 doses of the Sinovac vaccine for the Balkan country.
