The EU urged the U.K. to come clean about its exports of vaccines, amid an increasingly terse dispute where the bloc accused Britain of having an export ban.

“It’s important we know what’s happening in the supply chain,” said Joao Vale de Almeida, the EU’s ambassador to the U.K., speaking on ITV’s “Peston” program Wednesday evening. “This exchange has put that on the table,” de Almeida said, referring to European Council President Charles Michel’s earlier claim that the U.K. isn’t sending any vaccines overseas.
