Cleveland, July 21 (MTI) – The Hungarian foreign minister held talks with senior officials of influential think tanks and research institutes in Washington, DC, on Wednesday.
Péter Szijjártó’s negotiating partners represented, for instance, the McCain Institute, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Freedom House, APCO Worldwide and Georgetown University.
Szijjártó told them that the European Union was facing a historic challenge and the gravest threat of all times as the situation on the continent is “far from normal”.
“If the European Union fails to give up its hypocritical policy and to name and resolve the problems that caused the current situation, it will have to face even more serious troubles,” he said.
Both Brexit and the grave terrorist threats indicate that Europe should change its policies and provide more for the security of the people, Szijjártó said.
“Hungary and its government were only able to give successful responses to the serious challenges as they kept the security of the public in mind,” he said.
Later today, Szijjártó is scheduled to take part in a conference presided by US Secretary of State John Kerry and attended by representatives of the international coalition fighting the Islamic State terrorist organisation.
