Russia’s Sputnik V is likely to be approved in Europe by late June - Malta’s top diplomat
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is likely to register Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine by late June, Malta’s Minister for Foreign and European Affairs Evarist Bartolo stated ahead of talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Sochi due on May 25, TASS reports.
"As far as I know, this will happen this month or next month. We were always told that there were no problems from the EMA authorities, as long as all the required documentation and evidence is provided. As far as I know, the process is ongoing," Bartolo said.
"A number of European countries, after all, I think will begin to produce Sputnik V in their own countries. This is in our interests. And I’m not talking only about the Maltese. It is in the common interest. And I know many Maltese who were vaccinated with Sputnik V and they feel good," Malta’s foreign minister noted.
Malta’s top diplomat assured that after the Sputnik V certification in the EU and the resumption of direct flights from Moscow, Russian tourists "would not have any problems" with visiting the country.
