The foreign minister said the Hungarian government is working to protect the country and to keep it out of the war in Ukraine. “NATO’s current official stance on the war in Ukraine fully coincides with Hungarian interests: NATO is not at war, and we have to do everything to keep it so. NATO, as an alliance, does not deliver weapons and we must make sure that this war does not spill over Ukrainian borders,” Péter Szijjártó said in a Facebook post late on Wednesday. Minister Szijjártó expressed hope that the official stance would remain unchanged after the summit. “Unfortunately, several dangerous proposals have surfaced recently. We have to make clear that enforcing a no-fly zone over Ukraine or sending peacekeepers into the country would mean war between Russia and NATO in the air or on the ground. The most important duty is to avoid that,” he said.
