The danger of a Third World War has never been as great as it is today. That is why the conflict in Ukraine must be ended as quickly as possible and the counter-terrorism operations in the Middle East brought to a successful conclusion, which could also increase the chances of a return to connectivity and civilized international cooperation, said Hungarian Foreign and Trade Minister Péter Szijjártó in an address, in English, to the UN General Assembly in New York yesterday.
“I call on the Secretary-General and the Member States to do everything possible to avoid an escalation in Ukraine and the Middle East, because if another country gets involved in a conflict, it will not stop at that country’s borders and the danger of a regional or even global war could become real,” said Szijjártó, voicing the hope that the voice of the global peace majority in the UN could be strengthened against the “war psychosis” of the trans-Atlantic world.
“We pursue a sincere, open and peace-friendly foreign policy, a foreign policy that strives for mutual respect. That is why you can see that, although we are members of the Western alliance systems, NATO and the European Union, we can also talk to the countries of the East,” he emphasized.
That was the theme also of his meeting with UN Secretary General António Guterres, according to Prensa Latina’s report.
