Responding to a question about cooperation between Hungary and Turkey, Szijjarto said: “Please do not forget when you are talking about Turkey that it is a NATO member."
“So, naturally we cooperate with Turkey in the defense industry. Of course, we will continue this cooperation in the future,” he added.
He also spoke about Hungary’s attitude towards Turkey’s anti-terror Operation Peace Spring in northern Syria. “Neither Germany nor any other country has any influence on our stance on Turkish activities in Syria. At this point, we stand for the interests of the Hungarians,” Szijjarto said. ■
