Leading Hungarian politicians and analysts spoke at an international gathering of conservative thinkers in Rome.
“The Hungarian government has good relations with all parties of Italy’s future government so it will not be difficult to cooperate on issues like family police or fighting illegal migration,” Balázs Orbán, the Hungarian Prime Minister’s political director said at the Italian Conservatism conference in Rome on Friday.
According to Balázs Orbán, the recent Italian elections have shown that Italians know best what kind of government their country needs and they decided to put their trust in the conservatives. He noted that the results of rising inflation and utility costs caused by the EU’s sanctions policy can already be seen on the streets of Rome. He said that Western countries do not admit honestly that due to the EU sanctions against Russia all European consumers must pay a “sanctions surcharge.” With the national consultation, Hungary’s government will be the first to ask the opinion of the people, explained Balázs Orbán.
Fidesz MEP Balázs Hidvéghi, who also addressed the conference, told Hungarian news agency MTI that the Hungarian government hopes that the protection of national identity, culture, and borders, guaranteeing people’s security, supporting traditional families, and seeking peace will be dominant in Italy’s new leadership.
Miklós Szánthó, the director of the Center for Fundamental Rights (Alapjogokért Központ) told MTI that conservative parties are becoming more popular, because in the current situation people are looking for secure, predictable, sane policies. The fact that the liberals went to the extremes in Western civilization has also contributed to the rise of conservatives, the think tank’s director noted.
