Klimkin: MFA tomorrow to send note to Hungary over expulsion of Consul from Ukraine
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin has said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on Thursday, October 4, will send a note to Hungary on the expulsion of a Hungarian Consul in Berehove from Ukraine.
Speaking at a joint press conference with Moldovan Foreign Minister Tudor Ulianovschi in Kyiv, Klimkin said that in civilized countries, including Ukraine, diplomats are not expelled by force, an UNIAN correspondent reports.
"We are civilized and polite people, although tough and consistent at the same time... Of course, he will leave the country himself, but everything is very simple, I have already said. I suggested that [Hungarian Foreign Minister] Péter Szijjártó recall him. He has such a diplomatic week," Klimkin said.
"If this does not happen, and I understand that this will not happen because of the Hungarian position, tomorrow we will send a note to the Hungarian side that he should leave his work in Ukraine and, accordingly, Ukraine," the minister said.
