Stoltenberg: Hungary agreed not to veto the Alliance's aid to Ukraine

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said today that Hungary has agreed not to veto the alliance's aid to Ukraine, but the government in Budapest will also not provide any personnel or funds to help the country.

At a summit in Washington next month, US President Joe Biden and NATO allies are expected to agree on a new system to provide more predictable and long-term security assistance and military training to Ukraine.

"Hungary will not participate in these NATO efforts and I accept that position," Stoltenberg said in Budapest after talks with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.

Stoltenberg stressed that he and Orbán agreed on the conditions for Hungary not to participate in NATO's support for Ukraine. The head of NATO did not specify how this would be done.

"No personnel from Hungary will participate in these activities and no Hungarian funds will be used to support them," Stoltenberg said.

"At the same time, the prime minister assured me that Hungary will not oppose these efforts, which will allow other allies to continue to provide assistance, and confirmed that the country will continue to fully fulfill its obligations to NATO," Stoltenberg added.
