BUDAPEST, 7 Mar. (DPA/EP) -
The Hungarian Foreign Minister, Peter Szijjarto, lashed out at the West on Monday, assuring that European countries and the United States are suffering from a "war psychosis".
The minister spoke in front of Parliament, recriminating that "there are people in Brussels who see it as a competition to see who is going to send more weapons to Ukraine, Europe or the United States."
The world, he added, is at "hour 25" to stop an imminent world war, and has called for a ceasefire and peace negotiations between Russia and Ukraine.
Hungary supports the European Union's sanctions against Russia, but with reservations, and is also one of the only NATO countries, together with Turkey, that has not yet ratified the incorporation of Sweden and Finland into the organization.
In addition, the Hungarian Parliament confirmed in early March a new postponement of the vote with which the deputies are called to ratify these two countries, despite the fact that the Government of Viktor Orbán has theoretically shown no opposition.
