After an explosion in Kiev, Ukraine

In international politics today, reality and ideological approaches are extremely far apart, as exemplified by the completely unrealistic intentions to separate the European and Chinese economies, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in Martonvásár (central Hungary) on Tuesday.

The Minister said at the Martonvásár Civic Event that Europe is currently suffering from a “war psychosis,” with some leaders imagining themselves in Fortnite, but this is the reality, where people are dying and there is massive destruction. He stressed that despite the “inflated liberal expectations,” it is absolutely certain that

Russia cannot be defeated militarily in this conflict, if only because it is a nuclear power, but that Ukraine cannot lose either, because there will always be enough weapons from the West to maintain the status quo.

“If no one can win, and it has to be negotiated anyway, then the only question is, why not tomorrow?” he said, adding: “Every day that passes in this war brings more deaths and more destruction. And that makes it morally the only tenable position that we can take, that we need a ceasefire and peace negotiations as soon as possible.” In his opinion, Europe is now incapable of achieving this, and therefore a U.S.-Russian agreement is needed, which is also impossible under the current administration in Washington, so a change in U.S. leadership would be needed to bring it within reach.

Referring to a recent statement by the French President, he warned that sending Western troops would seriously violate the red line drawn by NATO several years ago, the essence of which is that the North Atlantic Alliance is not part of the conflict. However, given the changes in Europe’s position, this unfortunately cannot be completely ruled out, he noted.

At the panel discussion, Minister Szijjártó also touched on the Middle East conflict, where he said the first priority was to prevent escalation. In connection with the resolution of the crisis, he recalled that after decades of failure, the hope for peace had come within reach during the term of former U.S. President Donald Trump through the Abraham Accords, and a political change in Washington would therefore be hopeful in this area too.

He said that

there are many similarities between the positions of Donald Trump and the Hungarian government, for instance on family policy or on the fight against migration.

He also praised the strategy of opening up to the East and stressed that despite the political intentions to separate the European and Chinese economies, it is clear that a significant number of Western companies have become totally dependent on suppliers from East Asia, including in the automotive sector.

You have to see that the reality is that Eastern and Western companies are working as closely as possible together.”

As an example of the gap between reality and political propaganda, he said that the United States is constantly putting pressure on our country to end nuclear cooperation with Russia, while last year Russia was the number one supplier of uranium for the U.S. and their companies are also involved in the Paks expansion. “In international politics today, there is a huge gap between reality and ideology,” he underlined.

The Foreign Minister also highlighted the importance of the European Parliament elections, saying that a reversal of the negative trends would require the strengthening of rational, conservative, patriotic, nationalist, and sovereign parties. The stakes, he said, were therefore whether the European Parliament could be turned on its head, so that reality rather than ideology could take precedence in the body of representatives.
