Exclusive: Michel Says EU Should Consider Legal Means To Secure Promised Vaccines

The European Union should explore legal means to ensure supplies of COVID19 vaccines it contracted to purchase if negotiations with companies over delayed deliveries are unsuccessful, European Council President Charles Michel said in a letter.

BRUSSELS: The European Union should explore legal means to ensure supplies of COVID-19 vaccines it contracted to purchase if negotiations with companies over delayed deliveries are unsuccessful, European Council President Charles Michel said in a letter.

“I support all efforts to resolve the matter with companies through dialogue and negotiation,” Michel, who represents the EU’s 27 member states, said in a Jan. 27 letter to four EU leaders.

“However, if no satisfactory solution can be found, I believe we should explore all options and make use of all legal means and enforcement measures at our disposal under the Treaties.”
