“NThere is no rush. Nothing endangers Sweden’s security”, assured Orbán, in a session in the Hungarian Parliament.
Orbán also referred to a documentary series produced in Sweden in 2019 that criticized the loss of democratic values in Hungary, and stated that his country demands respect from Sweden as a prior step in deciding whether to allow it to join NATO.
Orbán’s party, Fidesz, announced last week that it did not agree to give the green light to Sweden’s accession to NATO because this process “caused consternation” among the deputies of this political organization.
Hungary and Turkey are the only two NATO countries that have not yet ratified Sweden’s membership in the Alliance, after having given the green light to another of the Nordic countries, Finland, to join the organization.
Hungary has been postponing the corresponding vote in Parliament for several months and the issue of ratification has been on the agenda of plenary sessions several times.
