Ministry of Foreign Affairs and expatriates: condemns the Hungarian decision and calls upon its ambassador in Budapest to consult
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and expatriates strongly condemns Hungary's decision to open a commercial office with diplomatic representation in Jerusalem, in contravention of the legal, diplomatic and sovereign violation of international law, Security Council resolution 478 of 1980, International law and European Union positions binding on its members, including the state Hungary, in clear contravention of the Vienna Conventions governing diplomatic and consular relations between States, specifically between Hungary and Palestine.
The State of Palestine strongly deplores this opposing position and rejects this shift in the Hungarian position, which is consistent with the Israeli claims. The Ministry affirms that the state of Palestine has decided to summon the Hungarian ambassador by informing him of the Palestinian stance rejecting this step, and asking him to convey the demands of the state of Palestine to his country to change its position in the interest of the bilateral relations that bring Hungary together with Palestine, Arabs and Muslims.
Thus, the Palestinian ambassador to Budapest was summoned to consult as an expression of the rejection by the state of Palestine of this hostile stance against Hungary. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and expatriates will study all the options available to deal with such a hostile decision, taking advantage of the proximity of the Arab Summit this month in Tunisia to demand the imposition of sanctions on Hungary as a result of its hostile stance on Palestine, and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation will demand the same Proceedings against Hungary, as long as Hungary has touched upon and encroached on the sovereignty of the State of Palestine. The Ministry will submit its proposals to the leadership for adoption and action.
