The President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović attended today in Banja Luka the delivery of medical equipment to the Institute for Public Health of the Republic of Srpska donated by the European Union, which was presented by the Head of the EU Delegation to BiH Johann Sattler.
The President Cvijanović said that the donated equipment will be used for two months of detecting the Coronavirus.
The President of the Republic stated that it is important to continue the process of immunization, emphasizing that it is taking place continuously in the Republic of Srpska.
“This process is running continuously, but we are not always satisfied with the quantities of vaccines we have. We are satisfied because the process is not interrupted and we continuously receive the necessary quantities to maintain that process”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of the Republic thanked the EU for its understanding and all forms of assistance, not only when it comes to the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Close cooperation between the Republic of Srpska, BiH and the EU is something we see benefits from. I am also grateful for the numerous projects that the EU has implemented in our municipalities in cooperation with our municipal and republic institutions”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of Srpska expressed the expectation that such processes will continue in the following period, as well as satisfaction when any signs of solidarity and cooperation are shown.
“It is not just a matter of how much you obtain in money and what the amount of something is. There are much more important gestures that we show to each other. Both big and small problems are successfully resolved if we are together”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of the Republic added that the pandemic crisis does not suit anyone in the world and that everyone is fighting against it in their own way, but added that, without solidarity and cooperation, and coordination of certain activities, it is difficult for any country to move independently.
The donated equipment is part of the total EU medical aid intended for BiH for the fight against the Coronavirus in the amount of 7.76 million euros, which has been delivered to the health institutions in BiH since March last year.
