NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in Brussels on Friday that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was not representing NATO in Moscow, but his own country. The head of NATO says Orban informed the alliance in advance of his visit to the Russian capital.

“Orban is not representing NATO in Moscow, but his own country,” Stoltenberg said at a press conference ahead of next week’s NATO summit in Washington, according to Agerpres. Reuters.

He noted that the Hungarian Prime Minister informed NATO in advance about his visit to Moscow and was sure that discussions on this topic would also take place at the summit of the North Atlantic Alliance in Washington.

Stoltenberg reiterated that Hungary has in the past supported several statements condemning Russia’s aggression in Ukraine.

“It is important that all allies, including Hungary, recognize that Russia is the aggressor and is responsible for the war,” the NATO secretary general stressed.
