strandhall orbán criticism

Hungary’s foreign ministry summoned the Swedish ambassador over critical remarks by a Swedish minister concerning the Hungarian government’s recent family assistance measures, the foreign minister said on Friday.

In a tweet, Annika Strandhall, the Swedish minister for social affairs, said that Hungary’s “alarming” policies were “reeking of the 1930’s”.

She suggested the Hungarian prime minister, who she said seeks to promote the birth of “more true Hungarian” babies, was a “right-wing populist trying to obscure the consequences of those policies to the independence women have fought for”.

Answering a question at a press conference on a different subject, Péter Szijjártó said Strandhall had used an “unacceptable” tone in her tweet. He said the Swedish ambassador had been told at the ministry that Strandhall’s comments, too, were unacceptable.

Szijjártó said the ambassador had taken note of Hungary’s stance and promised to convey it to Stockholm.

  1. Sweden should mind its own business and not interfere in the affairs of other countries.

  2. Nothing wrong for a country to support its own. Sweden is turning into a dung pile with its perverse immigration!

  3. I wouldn’t condemn the whole Sweden because of the stupidity of this minister. It’s obvious, Annika Strandhall does not have the intellectual capability for judging straightforward human common sense …. she is not alone….but, we don’t necessarily need to know…she should’ve kept it to herself. Now, her dumbness is public ! At least we know why are whole Swedish regions leaving their hometowns….
