According to Péter Szijjártó, it is outrageous that the US Department of State is dealing with the internal affairs of other countries.Continue reading
Below is the full version of the interview with the minister:
This is the one “edited” by the Dutch national broadcaster:
Asked by the reporter if Hungary feels isolated in the EU when its peace efforts are not supported, the Foreign Minister said that there are more people in Brussels who support them than those who openly take this position. He said they dare not challenge leading views on the grounds of cohesion, fearing pressure from NGOs and the media.
“On the other hand, the world is much broader than Europe or the transatlantic alliance, and the global majority, like Africa, Latin America, Asia, want peace. All the more so because they are also struggling with similar problems, food shortages, energy crises, inflation because of war,” he said. He added:
This clearly shows that Hungary belongs to the global majority in terms of its pro-peace stance.
There was also a question about how the Hungarians would feel if Russia invaded the country and they did not receive support, to which Szijjártó responded that it had already happened to us in 1956, so we know how it feels. The Foreign Minister rejected the assertion that it seems that we would welcome the United States outside NATO because Hungary is also closely linked to the Kremlin.
As for the European Parliament, the minister said he hoped they would be successful in the next elections, although when asked he admitted that he considered the Brussels assembly to be one of the most corrupt in the world, a view backed up by recent arrests. He criticized the lack of a concrete methodology to detect and deal with such cases in the interests of transparency. He criticized the fact that the Ombudsman is not being provided with the European Commission’s text messages concerning the billions of euros spent on procurement and the ordering of vaccines.
