“We pay special attention to border area developments and to establishing new border crossing points,” Szijjártó reportedly said. “We stand up for Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, which is also reflected in the fact that Hungary is still fifth on the list of countries delegating the most members to OSCE’s special monitoring mission,” kormany.hu cited Szijjártó as saying.
