Masks from Poland will be delivered to Italy soon - Italian Embassy

The Italian Embassy in Poland tweeted on Monday that the delivery of masks to Italy would soon be carried out without major problems, and thanked the Polish authorities for their cooperation in "these difficult moments for Italy."

Italian press agency Ansa reported on Saturday that the authorities of the Italian capital region of Lazio had protested against the seizure of 23,000 protective masks, at the border in Poland, purchased in connection with the epidemiological crisis.

Since Sunday, the Polish Foreign Ministry and the Polish Embassy in Italy have been denying this information, describing it as "fake news."

"The delivery of masks to Italy will soon be realised without any major problems. Thank you to the Polish authorities for their cooperation in these difficult times for Italy," the embassy wrote on Monday.
