Foreign minister: European Commission in witch-hunt against central European countries

The European Commission has launched a “witch-hunt” against several central European countries that speak about European challenges openly and honestly as well offering effective answers accordingly, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said on Thursday.

In a statement, the minister referred to a demand by Brussels for Poland to suspend its reform of the judiciary, saying that the commission was interfering in the domestic affairs of Hungary and Poland as part of a witch-hunt.

Szijjártó said the commission’s job was to make sure that treaties are observed according to European law rather than to “act as a political body” and “make politically based declarations”.

He said Hungary stood in friendship and solidarity with Poland.
