Hungary’s top diplomat warns EU may lose ground if it fails to build ties with Russia


A “potential conflict” between Russia and the EU will have extremely grave consequences for Hungary, Peter Szijjarto also noted
MOSCOW, January 23. /TASS/. The European Union will see its positions wane on the global arena, if it fails to build mutually advantageous relations with Moscow, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto noted after talks with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov.
“As the new US administration takes office, there is a possibility to look at things from another side,” he advised.
“If the United States starts building international relations on a bilateral basis, if China strengthens while the European Union fails to build constructive relations with Russia amid this background, then the EU will lose its positions on the international scene,” the Hungarian foreign minister noted.
“A [potential] conflict between Russia and the European Union will have extremely grave consequences for Hungary,” Szijjarto warned.
“In world history, Central Europe has always been in the worst position and that is why it is important for us that the West and the East should cooperate positively, culturally and pragmatically,” the Hungarian top diplomat said.
