Fidesz MEP slams EP president’s call for more EU arms shipments to Ukraine
Balazs Hidveghi, an MEP of Hungary's ruling Fidesz, on Sunday slammed European Parliament President Roberta Metsola's call for more EU weapons deliveries to Ukraine as "unacceptable", saying they would lead to a further escalation of the war.
“We cannot allow the irresponsible remarks made by politicians in Brussels to drag Europe further into the armed conflict and push the world towards the outbreak of a world war,” Hidveghi told MTI.
The EP president’s call on member states to send more weapons will lead to an escalation of the war, more bloodshed and more casualties, Hidveghi said.
“It is not weapons, but an immediate ceasefire that is needed,” he said.
Hungary remains pro-peace, Hidveghi said, adding that “we will not allow pro-war politicians to drag us into the war.”
“We will therefore resist pressure from Brussels in order to protect the security of the Hungarian people,” the MEP said.
