Hungary Responds to Ukrainian PM's Communication on Paks II
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade state secretary Tamás Menczer said the upgrade of Hungary's Paks nuclear power plant is a "fundamental condition" for preserving the country's energy security and affordable energy prices in a response to communication by Ukraine's PMr suggesting Ukraine aims to block the investment at the EU level, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
In a post on Facebook, Menczer said energy supply was "a sovereign matter". "Whoever attacks our energy security is attacking our sovereignty," he added.
He said it was "strange and unacceptable" that Ukraine was "attacking the energy security" of a NATO and EU member when the country itself wanted to join NATO and the EU.
Hungarians and the Hungarian government are doing everything in their power to provide for refugees from the war, he added.
