The President of Hungary speaks in the Assembly: It is important to maintain the security of the Western Balkans
The President of Hungary, Katalin Novak, was present in the Parliament of Albania, where she spoke about the tensions of the last few days in the North of Kosovo.
She said that these days it has been seen how little it takes to increase tensions and the situation to go to the level of war. Novak emphasized that it is important to preserve the stability and security of the countries of the Western Balkans.
She further stated that just as the Western Balkans need to be in the European Union, the EU also needs their membership.
"We had a very fruitful conversation. Not only as a woman I am for the first time as president, but also as a mother of three children. For me, this is the most important profession in my life. I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to give life three times. For me, today's visit to Tirana is very important because I am trying to do as much as possible in the diplomatic relations between the two countries.
"We have a long friendly relationship with Albania. We respect, understand and support each other. I came to Albania at a critical time. Europe is facing difficulties. First of all, the war in Ukraine and the consequences of this war. second the Western Balkans, stability. And third the continued increase in illegal immigration. Fourth the democratic challenges. Fifth the world political power of Europe is in question. I have to talk about the war in Ukraine.
"Everyone was surprised by what happened in Ukraine. Russia's decision to attack its neighbor has put us in a new situation. I want to mention that as Ukraine's neighbor we have helped 2 million refugees. Most of them they haven't stayed for long. We are there when we need to provide humanitarian aid."
"The war must end as soon as possible. We see the increase in the price of electricity, inflation, we see the fear in the eyes of people in Europe. Everyone is afraid that the war can reach his nation. Secondly, I mentioned stability. we all see Ukraine but we forget how important it is for the Western Balkans to have peace and security.
"How little is needed to increase tensions so that this then goes to the level of war. It is important to maintain the stability and security of the countries of the Western Balkans. In Kosovo, there are 400 Hungarian soldiers in the KFOR mission, 20 were injured during recent attacks. Most of them are in hospital."
"I am convinced that the stability of the Western Balkans is the key to European integration. The peace and security of Europe depends a lot on the Western Balkans. We support the integration of Albania in the EU. That is why we want to greet you, the Albanians, as citizens of the EU. Even we need you inside the EU", she said.
