Europe is pushing for more war and taking measures to not only accelerate arms deliveries to Ukraine but also stamp out pro-peace voices in Europe, said Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó in Luxembourg on Monday.

“The EU is in a warlike mood, with the vast majority of member states wanting to supply Ukraine with more weapons for more money,” said Szijjártó.

“This atmosphere of war here also implies that the pro-peace advocates that continue to argue for peace continue to come under severe political and verbal attack, whether from countries present here or not,” he added.

Reporting on the Luxembourg meeting of European foreign ministers, he said that it had again started with “self-blame,” with many believing that the EU had still not done enough to support Ukraine.

Evacuations from Sudan

According to a statement by the Hungarian Foreign Ministry, Szijjártó, while speaking at a press conference on the sidelines of the EU Foreign Affairs Council, said that another Hungarian citizen has been evacuated from the fighting in Sudan, who, together with his spouse, is now safe in Ethiopia, where they are being assisted by Hungarian embassy staff.

He added, however, that since the middle of last night, it had not been possible to contact the five other Hungarians in Khartoum because of the breakdown of internet and telephone services, but if there were any developments the ministry would announce them immediately.
