The foreign minister said the Hungarian government is working to prevent Hungary from being dragged into the war in Ukraine, and resisting the related “domestic and foreign pressure”.
Following a session of the national security operative body and a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Péter Szijjártó said that while diplomatic efforts have been ramped up and peace talks are under way, military action has not slacked in Ukraine, with constant armed conflicts reported. Minister Szijjártó confirmed that the government’s decision to refrain from sending soldiers or weapons to Ukraine was “firm and irrevocable”. Nor will the government allow lethal aid to cross the territory of Hungary, he added. “Irrespective of domestic and foreign pressure by the opposition and foreign players, we will stand by this decision,” he said.
