Russian FM stresses vaccination passports must not limit right to travel

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Thursday stressed that vaccination passports must not limit the right to travel.

Lavrov expressed the thought at a news conference after talks with the Kazakh foreign minister, Mukhtar Tleuberdi.

“I agree that vaccination passports must not restrict human rights, including the right to travel.

“However, exactly this kind of idea was initially discussed in the European Union.

“The question remains acute. And we need, as my counterpart said, to draft common rules within the Eurasian Economic Union that will not restrict the right to travel.

“Vaccine passports should have just one goal — to show health condition of the holder,” the Russian foreign minister said. (Sputnik/NAN)
