Trump’s UN speech brings ‘new complexion’ to debate, says Hungarian foreign minister
President Donald Trump’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly brought “a new complexion” to the debates at the UN after the speeches of Barack Obama, showing that “even in the world’s number-one superpower there are these debates”, Péter Szijjártó, the foreign minister, said in a public radio interview on Sunday.
Szijjártó also said US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley had spoken about the UN Human Rights Council making decisions on a political basis.
He said that
everyone at the UNGA had agreed that the organisation needed to be reformed.
A strong, comprehensive and impartial organisation is needed where communication channels are there to resolve conflicts, Szijjártó said.
The minister also talked in depth about Hungarian migration policy and the UN debates on the subject. He reiterated
Hungary’s standpoint that the adopting the current comprehensive migration pact currently under discussion in the UN would be “the worst possible step” when it comes to tackling the challenge of migration.
As we wrote yesterday, Hungary will not participate in the approval process of the United Nations’ global migration compact in any form and will not consider it binding at all, Szijjártó said in talks coinciding with the UN General Assembly session, read more HERE.
