Szijjarto welcomes new US-Russia nuclear arms control pact
Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto on Thursday welcomed an agreement between the United States and Russia to extend a treaty limiting the deployment of nuclear weapons.
In a Facebook post, Szijjarto noted that the US and Russia on Wednesday agreed to extend the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty until 2026.
“This is good news for the world and good news for central Europe,” the minister said.
“Those of us who live here in central Europe are aware of our historical experiences,” Szijjarto said. “The more balanced and fair relations are between the West and the East, the more secure our region will be …”
Szijjarto expressed hope that there would be many similar agreements in the future to improve international cooperation.
