“Another member state of the Turkic Council has shown solidarity towards the Hungarian people: the government of Azerbaijan has delivered 10 thousand masks today to our embassy in Azerbaijan,” Szijjártó's post reads.
“We are already organizing the donation to Hungary in order to make it available to the employees in the front line of health protection as soon as possible,” he said.
Foreing Minister Péter Szijjártó stressed that the donation marks another show of solidarity in Hungary’s battle against the novel coronavirus outbreak from a member state of the Turkic Council.
