Parliament votes to suspend Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe, supplementary documents

Lawmakers on Wednesday voted to suspend the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE) and its supplementary documents.

After Russia pulled out of the CFE last year, NATO member states on Nov 7 released a joint statement in which they declared their intention to suspend the treaty’s operation.

Hungary, as a NATO member, is fulfilling this intention by suspending the treaty.

The CFE’s suspension was approved with 177 votes in favour and 5 against.
