Szijjarto: ‘Great need’ for close central European cooperation

Commenting ahead of a Visegrad Group summit in Prague on Monday, Peter Szijjarto, the foreign minister, said on Facebook that "there will be a great need for close central European cooperation in preventing a series of dangerous decisions from being made in Brussels".

Szijjarto said Hungary, Slovakia, Czechia and Poland needed each other to prevent the mandatory distribution of illegal migrants, to stop low quality grain imports from Ukraine, to argue against taxes from being harmonised across Europe and against “the ideologically based discrimination” of nuclear energy.

“Of course, our positions on the EU’s response to the war in Ukraine and on peace are different; still, we are ready to continue cooperating in areas where our national interests coincide,” Szijjarto said.
