Szijjarto: Hungary to vote against Kosovo's membership in European bodies
BUDAPEST - Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto said on Tuesday in Budapest his country would vote against Kosovo's membership in European bodies.
"Our position is that, if certain European formations were to admit Kosovo before an agreement is reached, it would put a reaching of compromise in jeopardy. That is why Hungary will vote against Kosovo's membership in European bodies," Szijjarto told reporters at a press conference with Serbian FM Ivica Dacic.
Hungary is really interested in a solution for Kosovo being found based on real, true dialogue, he said.
"That is why we accepted to command KFOR troops in Kosovo, because we believed that, perhaps in that way too, we can help secure peace. We want a compromise reached as soon as possible," Szijjarto said.
