Novak also highlighted her country’s favorable ties with Türkiye.

“As Hungarians, I would like to emphasize that we stand with our Turkish friends,” she said, adding that her country strives to help earthquake survivors.

“We brought medical equipment and undertook the restoration of a church and cultural center,” she said, adding that they hope the region is reconstructed as soon as possible.

“Reconstruction requires strong leaders,” she said.

Regarding the ongoing war in Ukraine, Novak said her country is directly affected by it as they share borders.

“We condemn Putin’s aggression and defend Ukraine’s territorial integrity,” she said.

Novak also praised Türkiye for being a key player in preventing illegal migration, which she said poses a threat.
