The Republic of Serbia has donated 5 million pieces of protection equipment to Italy, which will be distributed by the Civil Protection services in Italy.
The shipment of the sanitary material took place on Saturday, April 25th, when four planes took off from Nikola Tesla Airport in Belgrade at 1 p.m.
The President of the Republic of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, together with the Minister for European Integration, Jadranka Joksimovic, and the Italian Ambassador to Serbia, Carlo Lo Cascio were present at the airport at the time of the departure of the aircraft.
On one of the boxes with the medical aid, President Vucic wrote: “We will win together. Be strong, Italy! Serbia is with you”.
“The situation in Italy is slightly improving but we still there is a long road ahead of us to win the battle against the coronavirus. And we need any form of help,” said Ambassador Lo Cascio and added: “For this reason, the invaluable material donated today will help to save lives”.
Thanking Serbia for this gesture – which symbolically happens on a very important date for Italy, the Liberation Day – the Ambassador commented how that was a sign of a strong friendship and solidarity that Italy will not forget.
