“Brussels is terrorising Hungary, but I’m happy to go there and talk to people who are not the enemy,’ Croatian President Zoran Milanović told journalists on Thursday. He added that Hungary has never attacked Croatia, which cannot be said of other neighbours.
Croatian President Zoran Milanović travelled to Budapest at the invitation of Hungarian President Katalin Novák. He was received by his Hungarian counterpart at the Sándor Palace on Friday, napi.hu reports.
According to the Croatian President’s Office, Zoran Milanović is also expected to meet with Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, representatives of the Croatian community in Hungary. He will also visit the Croatian Kindergarten, Primary School, Secondary School and Student Home (Horvát Óvoda, Általános Iskola, Gimnázium és Kollégium, HOSIG) in Budapest.
According to the politician, although they have different political views, this does not change the fact that the two countries have been good neighbours for a long time. “We disagree on some ideological issues, but it turned out that I was one of the few people who dared to go there,” said Zoran Milanović.
“Hungarian politics is different, but these democrats are terrorising them terribly”, the Croatian president said, referring to Brussels.
