“It is not a problem between us and Italy – specifies the minister Luca Beccari, solicited by the opposition in the Foreign Affairs Commission – how much between the European Union and the recognition of the Sputnik vaccine.

But the problem is that in much of Europe, Including Italy, is currently not recognized. “The new one issued in Italy – says the government – introduces the use of the Green pass for entry into indoor premises. It is a decree imposed by a third country, on which we cannot and do not intend to intervene, but we will continue to dialogue with the Italian government so that the use of a vaccine not recognized by EMA is not an obstacle to the access of San Marino citizens to certain Italian public services. ‘and therefore from the exemption from the obligation to produce any certificate for travel “. The executive says it is certain that the final green light of the European Union will soon arrive. “Our Green pass will be equivalent to that of any European citizen and will no longer represent any obstacle for the mobility of San Marino citizens”.
