The Hungarian government is donating 105,600 doses of the Sinopharm vaccine to the Islamic Republic of Iran so they can be distributed to Afghan refugees, as stated in the Official Gazette. In the decree, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán instructs Minister Miklós Kásler to contact the Iranian government and arrange the vaccine distribution.

Also appearing in the same Gazette is a Ministerial Decree from Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó declaring that the Islamic Republic of Iran should be included in the list of countries with which Hungary mutually recognizes each other’s vaccine passports.

Since the Taliban took over Afghanistan in August, the Los Angeles Times has reported that 400,000 Afghans have fled to Iran, which has deported thousands of refugees back to their country.
