"I bring you a piece of almost unbelievable news from the United Arab Emirates. We made a big deal tonight. We will build a completely new factory for "Sinopharm" vaccines together with the UAE and the Chinese in Serbia and start producing vaccines as early as October 15th", stated the President and added that we will have sufficient quantities of vaccines for us, but also for the entire region.
