Budapest, November 30 (MTI) – Hungary can be expected to strengthen over the next five years, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán told a Hungarian Diaspora Council meeting on Wednesday.
A mother country, if weak, is unable to pursue good diaspora politics, Orbán said. So it must strengthen and gain prestige, providing a basis for diaspora politics, Orbán told members of the council representing organisations of Hungarians scattered around the world.
He cited the latest jobless figures showing that Hungary is close to full employment.
Orbán also said that accepting Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia as European Union member states would be in the interest if all Hungarians as well as being a pan-European interest. Further resources are needed and the EU will not be able to renew itself without further enlargement, he added.
Hungary’s interest lies in having successful neighbours so that the entire region can strengthen. It is also a basic interest that every member of the V4 group should strengthen its position, he added.
