U.S. urges Hungary not to oppose NATO-Ukraine Commission
The United States Ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchinson in Brussels has reiterated her call for Hungary to stop obstructing the Alliance’s cooperation with Ukraine, the Voice of America Ukrainian Service has reported.
"The United States certainly supports a NATO Ukraine Commission. We have urged and will continue to urge Hungary not to oppose that," she said.
American representatives continued to point out that Budapest should not abuse its position as a member of the North Atlantic Alliance to resolve disputes with other countries.
"It is important. Ukraine is one of the key partners, allies that we have that we are working to bring into a stable government. The Russians are defying that. We want to be strong and I think all of NATO does, to help the Ukrainians get the independence that they have already started for themselves. In Maidan, they did a wonderful outreach to their own people for wanting to be in EU and in NATO and we want to do everything to help them in that quest," she said.
