Sijjarto sees 'chance for peace' in Ukraine if Trump wins

Jul 10, 2024

Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said that if Donald Trump wins the US presidential election, the "chance for peace" in Ukraine may increase.

He said this in an interview with Reuters.

Szijjarto justified the "peacekeeping voyages" of his boss, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, saying that Hungary's goal is to end the war through "peace talks" with Russia and Ukraine.


"I think there has to be a very strong external influence to make them at least start negotiations. Who has a chance of that in the near future? Only President Trump, if he is elected," he said.

The Hungarian foreign minister added that Budapest "sees a chance for peace if President Trump wins."

"We see a chance for good Hungarian-American relations if President Trump wins," Szijjarto said.
