24/06/2022 | 10:26:42 Thank you, Mister President. Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Colleagues, Vaccination is undeniably a weapon in the fight against many infectious diseases.

That, on the spot, we saw people from the UNHCR. We had a lot... 22/06/2022 | 15:40:20 Thank you, Mister President. Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear colleagues, This is a mission that was organised in record time, given the urgency of the situation.
