Hungary is defending Europe's borders, and NATO should support countries that, by preserving their stability, contribute to the outside defense of members, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in Madrid following a NATO summit, according to origo.hu.

Szijjártó said NATO should support Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon to preserve their stability and avoid increasing migration pressure.

With the war in Ukraine, a global food crisis could occur, and food supply could be at risk "in several countries in the Middle East, North Africa and South Africa where stability is on a knife's edge in many cases," the minister said.

"This critical food shortage will lead to an increase in extremism and the threat from terrorism, which are the root causes of migration processes, so we can expect a brutal increase in pressure in the coming period," Szijjártó said.

The minister said that following the summit in Madrid, he is traveling to Istanbul to meet with the executives of Russia's Rosatom to discuss the upgrade of the Paks nuclear power plant in Hungary.
