Pedro Sánchez, The President of the Government, announces Spain will provide vaccines to Latin America.
Pedro Sánchez, the president of the government, has announced Spain will provide Covid-19 vaccines to Latin America as soon as conditions of the health emergency make it possible.
Sánchez’s idea is that it will show the country’s “commitment” and “solidarity” to the Ibero-American community and that it is necessary to share vaccinations with those countries most in need.
The president plans to coordinate with the European Union to ensure vaccines arrive as soon as possible.
This announcement will be made in Andorra tomorrow where the 27th Ibero-American Summit is held. The summit is being held with Spain, Portugal, Andorra, the Dominican Republic and Guatemala.
This will be the first time that Ibero-American leaders have met since the beginning of the pandemic and the summit will focus on vaccines and their universal access in the subcontinent. The Cuban leader, Miguel Díaz Canel, and the Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, will not be present at the summit.
