In Bratislava, Justice Minister Judit Varga argued for respect for the diversity of nations in Europe, and a stronger conservative cooperation.
“The diversity of European nations, the different interests of different countries, must be at least as valuable as unity,” Justice Minister Judit Varga said at the Ladislav Hanus Society’s Conservative Summit in Bratislava on Monday.
In a panel discussion, the Minister said that “the progressive trend moves like a steamroller around the world, unifying everything it sees in front of itself, with the aim of abolishing national character, questioning sovereignty and the traditional social order,” and this calls for stronger conservative cooperation.
According to Varga, progressive liberals are forgetting the vision of the founding fathers, that the purpose of European cooperation is not to diminish nationalism, but to open up a wider space for action for nations and Member States.
“Europe cannot exist without nations, nations provide its foundation, and only strong nations can form a strong Europe. The solution is not to reduce the powers of Member States, but to make cooperation between the nations of Europe even closer, more respectful, and more effective,” she explained.
“We conservatives have the main task to protect natural communities such as family, historic churches, the nation, and regional cooperation,”
the Justice Minister added.
