During Hungary’s last term, which provedto be particularly intense and challenging, given the acute situation in our immediateneighbourhood, the Balkans,Hungary’s geographical position, its significant expertise gained in the areas of democracy-building and the rule of law will also undoubtedly serve as a good basis for its effectivecontribution to the work of the Security Council.
