Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said that he has not yet seen the grounds to rush with the process of adopting Sweden in NATO.
Orban said this in his speech at the opening of the autumn session of the Hungarian parliament.
According to him, at the moment, “nothing threatens Sweden’s security,” and therefore Hungary has no reason to rush with the process of accepting the country in the Alliance.
“It is necessary to see if there is something urgent that will push us to the ratification of Sweden membership in NATO. I do not see such circumstances,” Orban said.
Earlier, the chairman of the Hungarian Parliament Laszlo Kever stated that Hungary may not ratify Sweden’s entry into NATO in the coming weeks.
