Hungarian FM says only UN can solve conflict in Ukraine

Budapest, Feb 8 (Prensa Latina) Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Peter Szijjártó, said on Thursday that only the United Nations could prevent a further escalation of the armed conflict in Ukraine.

Other international associations could not comply with this task, Szijjártó said during a meeting with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in New York.

Over the last two years, the European Union and other organizations have shown their inability to stop the war and turn the situation in Ukraine in a peaceful direction, the foreign minister stated.

Instead of keeping peace, weapon supplies are being made, and this will only prolong the war and cost more lives, he wrote on his Facebook page.

Szijjártó accompanied the post with photos of a conversation with the UN chief.

The United Nations is the last hope to prevent an escalation of hostilities in Ukraine and the Middle East, and I assured UN Secretary-General Guterres that Hungary will give its full support for the sake of peace,” he said.

The conflict began on February 24, 2022, after the Russian Federation announced a special military operation in Ukraine in response to a request for help from the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) to repel Kiev’s aggression.
