Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said Hungary was ready to act as an intermediary with Russia addressing a summit on peace in Ukraine in Switzerland on Sunday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

"We are basically the last country of Europe which has not cut the channels of communication with the Russian Federation. We have the channels of communication open, we can talk....therefore we can be instrumental in this regard," Szijjártó told the summit.

"We don't want more people to die in this war," he added.

He noted that more than 1.3 million refugees from Ukraine had arrived in Hungary since the start of the war and the country had ensured access to healthcare and education for those families who decided to stay.

He added that around 150,000 ethnic Hungarians lived in the west of Ukraine.
