Iran hopes to receive more doses of Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine against the coronavirus, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday.
“I would like to thank the Russian Federation for vaccine delivery, and I hope that through the cooperation between our countries we will be able to license the manufacturing of the Sputnik V vaccine here in Iran and will be able to get more doses of the Sputnik vaccine here in Iran,” Zarif said at a press conference, held after negotiations with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
“We have delivered over 500,000 two-component doses of the Sputnik V vaccine to Iran … We are ready to keep assisting our neighbor’s fight against the pandemic, including through organizing vaccine production on the Iranian territory,” Lavrov said.
