Government to continue ‘peace mission’, minister says

Hungary's government will continue its peace mission "despite the attacks of pro-war European politicians", the foreign minister said on Facebook on Sunday, at the end of the first week of the Hungarian presidency of the European Union.

“It must have become apparent to everyone that the next six months will be a peace mission,” Peter Szijjarto said.

Hungary will do everything in its power to contribute to the end of the war and to broker peace, “after two and a half years of suffocating war crisis.”

The past week had also shown why the crisis was deepening in Europe, Szijjarto said. “Europe is full of pro-war politicians who have all surfaced this week, criticising the Hungarian government and prime minister for working for peace.”

Those politicians “have deepened the crisis with weapon deliveries, with [voicing] phantasies on sending land troops and about nuclear weapons,” he said.

“These attacks do not intimidate or discourage us, the peace mission will continue and even strengthen, and so I would like to ask pro-war politicians to buckle their seatbelts and pay attention next week too,” Szijjarto said.
