Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Thursday that his country still intends to ratify Finland and Sweden’s accession to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
Orban said that his government has already made its decision, according to what was reported by the Slovak news agency “Taser” after his meeting with the heads of government of Slovakia, Poland and the Czech Republic.
“We have already informed Sweden and Finland about this,” Orban was quoted as saying by the agency.
Orban’s government submitted the ratification bill to Parliament weeks ago, but Parliament – which is controlled by Orban’s party – has not put it on the agenda yet.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that Orban promised his counterparts during the meeting that ratification would be included in the agenda of the first parliamentary session for next year, ie “within a month or two,” Morawiecki quoted Taser.
