ANKARA, March 26 (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan said
on Friday he had reminded China's foreign minister during talks
in Ankara on Thursday that Turkey expects to receive 50 million
doses of COVID-19 vaccines from  Sinovac Biotech  SVA.O  as per
a deal between the two countries.
    Turkey has until now been using COVID-19 vaccines developed
by Sinovac, received as part of an agreement to procure a total
of 100 million doses, and has administered 14.6 million shots,
with 8.2 million people having received a first dose, since Jan.

    Erdogan told reporters in Istanbul after Friday prayers that
he had told Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi that Turkey had not
received the 50 million doses by the end of February as pledged
in the agreement and was therefore expecting them. He said Wang
told him he would bring the issue up with China's president.
