Szijjártó remarked that Russia Hungary's third largest trading partner and the Russian-Ukrainian conflict can have profoundly negative consequences for Hungary. Sanctions can in particular negatively affect Hungarian agriculture and food exports to Russia.
If any member of the European Union would propose new sanctions against Russia, it would be equally damaging to Russia, and the European Union including Hungary referring to the weekend's EU summit by the prime ministers and foreign ministers of the EU countries.
If the topic of sanctions will come up at the meeting PM Viktor Orbán will obviously consider the impact of the proposed sanctions on the Hungarian economy and he votes accordingly said Szijjártó.
According to the secretary of state, Russia and the European Union must live in a strategic alliance in a future. This would help Europe to regain its competitive edge said the minister of state.
