Hungary rejects sanctions on Russian energy shipments -foreign minister

Hungary opposes any sanctions on Russian energy imports because they would jeopardize Hungary’s energy security, foreign minister Peter Szijjarto reiterated Hungary’s position at the United Nations Human Rights Council on Wednesday.

“It is not Hungary’s fault that Russian natural gas and oil play such a large part in Hungary’s, Central Europe’s, and Europe’s energy supply,” Szijjarto said in a speech webcast on his Facebook page.
