Belgrade [Serbia], October 11 (ANI/Sputnik): The Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov urged the European Union on Sunday to act reasonably as talks on the mutual recognition of COVID-19 vaccine certificates showed no signs of progress.

"We see their biased, politicized attitude to Russian vaccines," Sergey Lavrov said at a news conference in Serbia, adding he hoped that "common sense will prevail."

The top Russian diplomat spoke in Belgrade after a meeting with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, who thanked Lavrov for his country's contribution to the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

"We received the first and second components of the Sputnik V vaccine during the Covid crisis... We remember who stood by us during these difficult times," Vucic told reporters.

Serbia launched industrial production of Russia's Sputnik V vaccine for domestic use in June and plans to complete the full manufacturing cycle by the end of the year. (ANI/Sputnik)
