Addressing the Three Seas Summit in Riga on Monday, President Katalin Novák expressed support for a peaceful resolution to the war in Ukraine and promoted Hungary’s economic interests.
Novák noted on Facebook that the Three Seas Initiative was launched in 2015 to promote the North-South infrastructure axis in Europe to complement the existing East-West one.
At the Riga summit of the presidents of 12 countries, she highlighted issues “that are important to Hungary and the Hungarian people”.
As well as efforts to establish peace in Ukraine, Novák argued that the interests of countries without direct access to the sea must be taken into consideration when it comes to energy supplies.
Further, the president said: “We support the swiftest possible accession to the European Union of Ukraine and Western Balkans countries.”
The presidents of Germany, Poland, Austria, Slovenia, Lithuania, Estonia, Romania and Bulgaria, also attended the summit, alongside the prime minister of Croatia, the speaker of the Czech Senate and, through a video link, the Ukrainian president.
