Making progress in peace-making in the Middle East “has turned out to be very difficult”, Hungary’s foreign minister, Péter Szijjártó, said on the sidelines of a conference on the Middle East. A solution cannot be anticipated in light of developments in Syria, while events in Yemen may pose further challenges for Europe, Szijjártó said. “Whatever happens in the Middle East will be immediately felt in terms of European security,” he added. “We are interested in the success of initiatives aimed at resolving conflicts in the Middle East because that would relieve Europe of huge migration pressure.” In the Middle East there are 30-35 million people “that could make up their mind any time to set off for Europe,” Szijjártó said, referring to those “who have lived for years as internal refugees, ones who need humanitarian aid on a daily basis or who are already on their way in the hope of a better life”.
