Budapest (MTI) – Hungary’s position is the same as it was in 1956: it will protect itself, its borders and its freedom, economy minister Mihaly Varga said on Friday.
The minister addressed a commemoration in front of Hungarian Radio headquarters in Budapest’s Brody Sandor street, and criticised Europe’s leaders for “acting without authorisation from Europeans”. He argued that those citizens “support Hungary’s policy because they won’t have hundreds of thousands or millions of migrants arrive in the EU”.
Hungarians know that not only dictatorship or foreign occupation could bring a nation down but their own “disability, weakness, or delay”, Varga said. He added that the government was committed to fighting on for Hungary’s national, political, and economic independence.
