The opposition Democratic Coalition’s (DK) shadow government paid a two-day visit to London and studied the operations of Britain’s Labour Party, Ágnes Vadai said on Thursday.
Vadai told an online press briefing that she met Chris Evans, the UK’s shadow minister for defence procurement, and they discussed NATO expansion and joint procurements by the alliance.
She then met Holly Lynch, the shadow security minister, and they discussed the security challenge Russia poses to Europe and NATO as well as the International Criminal Court (ICC) arrest warrant issued against Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Vadai said the Hungarian government “made clear on Thursday that if the Russian president enters Hungarian territory they cannot launch a procedure against him of any kind.” DK will submit a resolution proposal to parliament on implementing all ICC decisions and the body’s statute in Hungary. If Putin “steps onto Hungarian soil, the Hungarian authorities should be able to arrest him immediately for committing war crimes,” she said.
