Global security is now in its worst shape since the end of the Cold War, Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said when speaking at the high-level conference "Eurasian Security: Reality and Prospects in a Transforming World" in Minsk on 26 October, BelTA has learned.
"I would like to express my gratitude for being invited here. I am convinced that dialogue is an important thing. I believe that it is very important to keep channels of communication open. It is for this reason that I gladly accepted this invitation, despite the fact that I risk being seriously criticized for this in some parts of Europe," Péter Szijjártó said.
"Unfortunately, it would not be an exaggeration to say that global security is now in its worst shape since the end of the Cold War," the minister added. “The two major wars are determining global security at the moment. One of them is right next door to us, because we are neighbors of Ukraine. The second one is happening in the immediate vicinity of Europe. This military conflict is seriously affecting us," the minister said.
