Czech morning news in brief: top stories for Feb

Serbia should enter the Schengen Area as soon as possible and the Czech Republic also supports the accession of this Balkan country to the European Union (EU), Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš said at a press conference after meeting his Serbian counterpart Ana Brnabić. He recalled that at EU summits he had repeatedly actively submitted the proposal that Serbia joins the Schengen Area within the tackling of illegal migration. In his opinion, this process might be faster than Serbia’s EU entry, he added. He also said it is interesting that the citizens of Serbia can choose which COVID vaccine they will receive. So far, Serbian authorities approved the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, the Russian Sputnik V, and the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine. In Europe, Serbia ranks second when it comes to the number of administrated vaccines, following Britain that comes first, Babiš said.
