Peter Szijarto, the Foreign Minister of Hungary claimed that Budapest took its veto off the statement made by the Ukraine-NATO committee. This is due to the fact that the Hungarian side's proposals were included in the document just after its official deadline for passing has expired. Origo quoted him as saying.
The Hungarian official claimed that NATO and Ukraine's ambassadors passed the document, which actually included the proposals that Budapest insisted on during the session.
"The joint statement decisively supports the concerned Hungarian community and urges Ukraine to live up to the international rules and standards of international organizations", he said.
"Hungary aspires for good neighbourly relations with Ukraine, and it's ready for consultations with the new Ukrainian leadership. We hope we can restore our former neighbourly relations. We continue to recognize the new President, and the new hope", the Minister concluded.
