The Hungarian right-wing Mi Hazánk (Our Motherland) party has proposed a veto over NATO expansion. This was announced on Wednesday, March 1, by party spokesman Eled Novak during a discussion in the Hungarian parliament on the ratification of Sweden and Finland’s membership in NATO.
Novak believes that the admission of Sweden and Finland to NATO will be a provocation and a step towards a world war. He noted that his party is the only one that advocated a veto on NATO expansion.
“This will be seen as a provocation, a new step towards a world war, while the neutral zone meets international interests,” the publication quotes. index.hu Novak.
He emphasized that Our Motherland has no claims against Finland and Sweden, but noted that “the peace of Europe and a delicate balance are ensured only if Russia and NATO have no or practically no common border.”
“The time has come for Hungary, having vetoed NATO expansion, to finally take action against the war,” Novak said.
Earlier that day, the Finnish parliament held a vote on the adoption of a bill on the republic’s accession to NATO. He was approved.
On February 18, Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced that the ratification of the documents required for Sweden and Finland to join NATO had passed in 28 out of 30 countries. Only Turkey and Hungary did not ratify the documents.
The Russian Foreign Ministry, in turn, reacted critically to the desire of Sweden and Finland to join NATO, noting that in this way the security of these two countries would not be ensured.
