SZIJJÁRTÓ HAS TALKS WITH UK COUNTERPART

 

Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó had talks with James Cleverly, his British counterpart, from Stockholm by phone. The talks focused on the Ukraine war and Finland and Sweden’s NATO integration, Szijjártó said on Facebook after the talks. He said the war “impacts Hungary immediately and seriously”, adding that the number of Hungarian soldiers dying in the front lines was increasing. The two ministers agreed that an early solution must be found to answer global inflation, energy and food supply difficulties. Szijjártó welcomed the recent Windsor Agreement between the European Union and the UK, and assured his British counterpart of Hungary’s support in building “the deepest and broadest possible cooperation” between the bloc and Britain. Szijjártó said the Hungarian government supported the ratification of Finland and Sweden’s NATO integration, but added that it was a “rightful expectation” that those countries “should not spread lies and false information and give due respect to Hungary”.
