Government official: Majority ‘outside transatlantic bubble’ wants peace

The majority of the world, "outside the transatlantic bubble", wants peace, the state secretary for bilateral relations said on Tuesday, after an official visit to Kyrgyzstan.

Kyrgyzstan wants peace, as does Hungary, and rejects weapon deliveries to Ukraine, Tamas Menczer said in a video on Facebook after meeting the Kyrgyz minister of economy, the deputy governor of the national bank, and attending a meeting of the Kyrgyz-Hungarian intergovernmental committee.

Kyrgyzstan also suffers from the “failed Brussels sanctions”, he said.

The intergovernmental meeting had been “productive”, he said, and highlighted water management, sustainable energy, agriculture and the food industry as the most important sectors in cooperation. The two countries signed an agreement on Hungary’s role in planning and constructing a water plant in Kyrgyzstan, he said.

A 16 million dollar fund is also supporting Hungarian investments and developments in the country, he said.

Regarding cooperation in education, the Stipendium Hungaricum programme offers grants for 200 Kyrgyz students wishing to study in Hungary, he said.
