SZIJJÁRTÓ: PAST JOINT NATO DECISIONS SHOULD REMAIN IN EFFECT

 

What is at stake for Hungarians at the Bucharest summit of NATO foreign ministers is that the joint decisions that have been approved in connection with the war in Ukraine remain in effect, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Tuesday. The most important of those decisions is that NATO is not a part of the Russia-Ukraine conflict and that everything must be done to prevent a direct conflict between the alliance and Russia, Szijjártó told public current affairs channel M1 from Bucharest. Szijjártó said the NATO secretary general had made it clear in his opening address to the summit that NATO is not a part of the conflict. He added that based on the responses, NATO foreign ministers were in agreement that everything needed to be done to prevent an escalation of the war.
