Hungary continues to support efforts to bring about peace in the Middle East and will continue to advocate a fair approach to countries of the region by international organisations, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said over the weekend in connection with Bahrain’s move to normalise its ties with Israel.
Szijjártó called it “good news” that Bahrain has joined the United Arab Emirates in agreeing to normalise its diplomatic relations with Israel. Since the White House drafted its plan for stabilising the region, this is the second such development, demonstrating that the most recent American peace plan “is the best one yet” with the best chance of establishing peace in the Middle East, the minister said. Szijjártó praised US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu along with his UAE and Bahraini counterparts for their efforts in finalising the agreements to normalise diplomatic ties.
He said it was an “honour” that Hungary has received a ministerial-level invitation for the signing of the agreement to be held in the White House garden next Tuesday.
