Asked about signs of diminishing global support for Ukraine, Szijjarto said the “Ukraine fatigue in European national parliaments and in the US is proof that the circumstances for peace are not going to improve”.

“This is a major debate in Europe, between us and those that don’t think that peace should come now, saying that the situation should improve on the battlefield day by day,” he said. “But this is not the case,” he added.

The goal should be to save lives, he said. “Then get Ukrainians and Russians … negotiate a peace deal,” he added. “This is not going to take place without the United States,” Szijjarto said.

He said the territorial integrity and sovereignty of all countries in the world must be respected.

“We have never recognised the occupation of any territory of Ukraine,” he added.
