Opposition socialists call for ‘more balanced’ Hungarian foreign policy

Tibor Szanyi, deputy head of the Socialist Party, on Monday called on the Hungarian government to pursue a “more balanced” foreign policy.

Szanyi slammed Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for his “see-sawing” in diplomacy, and said that “you cannot praise Russian and then Islamic cultures at first, then call countries of those cultures a threat from the east or the south”.

Szanyi insisted that Orbán had been given a “dressing down” by Russian President Vladimir Putin during their meeting on Sunday as a result of Orbán’s referring to Russia as a threat earlier last week, and also suggested that Orbán may have been scolded during a recent visit to Berlin and Munich for his government’s illiberal line.

“It hurts the Socialists if the Hungarian government is given a dressing down by any world power,” Szanyi said.

Answering a question, Szanyi said that his party would not support the government’s 2019 budget proposal in parliament.

    Your the one and your 10% useless party that needs the “dressing down”! In fact you should dress down so that someone can come and whip your ass so being so disrespectful of a majority government leader, even though you only have a few rats yourself to chew on some old rotting scrap. Can’t you stupid old commies grow up and grow some balls, rather than hiding in behind the curtains and putting this crap you call news and protest into the media??
    We’re tired of it and will swat it out like any other pesky fly!!

    The Socialist’s need to develop a little spine and character for the truth, even if it hurts !
    Is it because Prime Minister Viktor Orban is a national leader that calls it, with outstanding personal courage, I might add, as he sees it ? so very different to those so used to denying the truth with their ‘holier than thou’ attitude of – peace at any price !
    Both leaders have great respect for one another, I believe, it, to be beyond a Socialist’s view of events attributed to the meeting above !
