Budapest, June 19 (MTI) – The Hungarian government will place an advertisement in the British press on Monday to encourage UK voters to support their country remaining a member of the European Union in the upcoming referendum on the subject, the Hungarian government spokesman confirmed press reports on Sunday.
Zoltán Kovács told MTI that a strong Europe required cooperation between its largest members, therefore Britain’s membership was crucial.
The advertisement, signed by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, will read: “The decision is yours, but I would like you to know that Hungary is proud to stand with you as a member of the European Union”.
The British referendum is set for next Thursday.
