  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “‘There is no vaccine war’: EU ambassador to UK” – below is their description.

    Talk of a “vaccine war” between the European Union and the United Kingdom is totally untrue, says the EU’s ambassador to the UK. João Vale de Almeida tells FRANCE 24 “our common enemy is the virus” and that the EU is still the biggest exporter of Covid-19 vaccines in the world, despite agreeing recently on a mechanism to block vaccine exports in some circumstances. That mechanism had prompted British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab to accuse the European Union of “brinkmanship”.
