BUDAPEST, January 30. /TASS/. Hungary and Austria will not send weapons to Ukraine and would like to prevent the escalation of the ongoing conflict, Kristof Szalay-Bobrovniczky said after the talks with his Austrian counterpart Klaudia Tanner in Budapest Monday.
"Hungary’s position is clear: we do not ship weapons to the area of conflict, because we want to avoid its escalation, and our position coincides with Austria’s position," Szalay-Bobrovniczky said, noting that the two ministers discussed the situation in Ukraine. "The neutral Austria also does not ship weapons to where hostilities take place."
Meanwhile, Tanner said that she considers the Ukrainian conflict spilling into Europe the greatest danger.
"We are not talking about conventional war alone, but also about non-traditional threats, such as growth of migration, exacerbated by the war," she said, according to the MTI news agency.
