The European Union failed the exam, which is the coronavirus pandemic. The EU did not provide sufficient support to its countries, which suffered the most from the coronavirus, said Advisor to the President of Turkey, Yasin Aktay.
“Such issues should be addressed EU, because the problem of one country is the problem of the whole union. Europe did not pass the coronavirus exam. When (the affected countries, approx. LOOK) knock on the door, but they do not open, they are forced to knock on the other door, ”said the adviser to the Turkish leader of RIA Novosti.
He added that in the face of a new threat it is inappropriate to talk about old grievances. Aktay emphasized that the confrontation between NATO and Russia should lose its relevance.
“Having a common enemy brings people together. Under these conditions, NATO is not opposed to anyone, everyone is fighting the virus together, this has united the whole world. Now the most important thing is to overcome the pandemic, ”said the adviser.
At the same time, he specified that Turkey does not expect help from NATO, since its situation against the backdrop of a pandemic is better than in other countries of the alliance.
“You need to exchange information about creating a vaccine and medicine, you can not turn this into a mechanism for making money. Medicines should be a common solution for everyone, they need fair and equal access, ”Aktay explained.
According to him, Turkey is provided with everything necessary in a pandemic, it was better prepared than other countries for such a situation.
“In April last year, a decision was made at the level of the presidential administration on measures to combat epidemics. Therefore, we do not have any panic, in addition, the virus came to Turkey late, this gave us extra time to prepare. We have no problems with mechanical ventilation, there is even something we can give to other countries, ”he said.
The newspaper VZGLYAD was investigating whether the fight against the coronavirus would be able to reconcile all the warring parties on earth.
In Germany, it was previously indicated that Russia and China came to the aid of Italy earlier than the EU countries.
