More and more people look to Hungary as an example to follow, and the country’s ideas on building Europe are gaining traction, Justice Minister Judit Varga said ahead of an international forum in Alpbach, central Austria on Thursday.
Though the international media and certain politicians “enjoy portraying Hungary as the black sheep” of Europe, the country is a regular guest at the European Forum in Alpbach, the minister said in an English-language post on Facebook.
Varga said that despite a push by
some to “exclude Hungary” from the event,
“Hungary is alive and well” and “there are no traces of exclusion at the Forum”.
Many are curious about Hungary’s perspective and solutions, she said, adding that “more and more people consider us an example and accept our advice on how to build Europe.”
Varga said she is later scheduled to hold talks with European Commission Vice-President Dubravka Suica and take part in a panel discussion on the challenges facing Europe at the invitation of Karoline Edtstadler, Austria’s federal minister for the European Union.
Other topics at the forum include migration, climate change, the post-Covid recovery and the ongoing conference on the future of Europe,
Hungary remains committed to Europe and the EU, Varga said, adding that “we want to build this community” instead of “destroying the unity with artificial ideological debates”.
China and Russia, more particularly China can hardly wait until Hungary leaves the EU. The leftwing Marxist media and leaders of Holland, Luxemburg, Brussels and others are absolutely short sighted and utterly stupid (the word I hate to use) with their constant criticism of the country. The socialist leaders cannot be solely blamed, is the voters (probably high on drugs) that elected them.
Hungary is preserving Europe.
If anyone is on psychoactive drugs it’s you. Marxist leaders indeed! Anything to the keft of far right is ‘marxist’ to people like you.
Maria Von Theresa, you are exactly on point. Orban and Fidesz are doing an excellent job. Ignore the haters that want open borders, LGBTQ story hours in schools and other morally and financially bankrupts social policies.
Less one forgets China is still a communist country and their buddy Orban is happily in bed with them. As I recall communism is the bugaboo that was created by your favorite the leftwing Marxists. And Russia, speaking of corrupt…
“Orban and Fidesz are doing an excellent job” Ha, ha, ha. The joke’s on the EU and the Hungarian people.
I don’t like communist China but it takes a warped personality to blame tiny Hungary for doing business with China. Who doesn’t? Soviet occupied Europe endured communism while Western Europe celebrated Stalin and the Soviet Union. A truly disgusting bunch. Of all the communists that want to replace Orbán the most despicable are the Gyurcsány-Dobrev-Apró gang.
Hey Stevie… Hungary isn’t preserving anything except it’s livers. Doing business with China is one thing selling out the country for private profit (read FIDEZ business model) another. Then again perhaps you know which side your bread is buttered on.
