“Our fate is bound with that of Europe,” President Katalin Novák said on Saturday at a celebration of Hungary’s St. Stephen’s Day national holiday.
“We need the community of European countries and they need us, too,” the president said in Székesfehérvár, in central Hungary. “Today, when the continent is at risk of becoming a battleground of the major powers, we must stand shoulder to shoulder,” Novák said. Europeans must reach joint decisions that serve the common good, she added.
“The precondition for our cooperation is that they do not blackmail us either with the money we are entitled to or ideologies that have been rejected by Hungarians,” the president said. Hungary wants to make Europe stronger and the continent’s “voice louder”, Novák said. “This is how we’ll have a chance to protect Europeans and preserve the parts of our history and culture that made Europe great,” she added.
The president said brave, determined and wise leaders were needed to restore order in the world and Europe. Such leaders, she said, were capable of upholding law and justice and would not forget about those in need. In addition to good leaders, sober-minded, considerate and wise Hungarians who show solidarity are also needed, Novák said.
The Hungarian people are crisis resistant and their strength comes from their ability to unite,
Noting Saturday morning’s swearing-in ceremony of new officers, Novák thanked Hungary’s troops for their patriotism, determination and courage, saying: “May God spare us from war and keep our soldiers and our families in peace.”
In her capacity of commander-in-chief of the Hungarian Armed Forces, the president said that Hungary’s leaders would do everything in their power to “prevent bloodshed on Hungarian soil”. “It is now that we must draw strength from King Saint Stephen’s wisdom, faith, foresight, tactfulness, courage and modesty,” Novák said. “It is now that we have the opportunity to consider how many instances of bad luck, conflict and injustice the Hungarian nation survived to remain strong.”
The president said the founding of a state was similar to forming a family in that they both required courage, faith, determination and hope in the future.
Without Saint Stephen’s brave decision, there would not be an independent and strong Hungary today, “just as we wouldn’t be here without the brave decisions made by our great-grandparents and our grandparents”, she said.
The president expressed the wish that Hungarians would “always have bread on their tables and people with whom it is a joy to sit around the table”.
President Katalin Novak – “We need the community of European countries and they need us to.”
Katalin Novak – retention of Fact, to make a somewhat explosive statement of this – the “rhetoric” or “jargon” used – the platform and day it was used, is a concern.
“Community of European Countries” – the membership of Hungary remaining a member of the European Union, the rightful “starvation” of funding and “other” support of the European Union, comes back to points of law – membership laws – of a country being – a member country of the European Union.
Novak – is she not a Lawyer, by Profession ?
Hungary, under the Leader of the Political Party, the present President of Hungary – Katalin Novak – is a “pro-active” member – Fidesz / Victor Orban present Prime Minister of Hungary, contracts – laws – obligations – words muchly used and refered in LAW – these (3) three words – through FAILURE of Hungary to comply – to the legal meaning adaptation of the words – part of the reason(s) why – the statement made by the President of Hungary – Katalin Novak – the need of “Community of European Countries” – breaks down – in points of law, contractual law – because Hungary – have BROKEN laws of membership – of the European Union.
What laws is the President of Hungary advocating for Hungary – as she states – the need of Hungary – in the Community of Europe ???
Hungary – the Laws of Membership – that rightfully a country be called a Member of the Community of Europe / the European Union – UNITED under the Laws of Membership – this is what Hungary have FAILED to practice, embrace, support – contribute in a positive role of its membership contribution – that is ALL performed and conducted under Democracy.
President Katalin Novak of Hungary – that word Democracy – the power of the word in membership of the “Community of European Countries” – you statement, does not INCLUDE – the need of Hungary – to again return to CORE values & principles of Democracy – to return into – be “considered” again, as a country – that is part of the Community of European Countries – under Democracy.
Wonder what the President of Hungarys opinion is of Democracy ?
Democracy – is Dialogue.
Democracy – has NO place for elements of Dictatorship – in the CORE meaning & interpretation, the practice and conducting of Democracy.
Hungary – the determination of the present Government, that has been their agenda – commencement 1998 – is to CRUSH core elements in the operation and componentry that surrounds the word – Democracy.
Hungary – under the Dictatorial styled & conducted form of Government, led by Victor Orban, the Party Leader of Fidesz and present Prime Minister of Hungary – supported by membership like that of the present President of Hungary – Katalin Novak, continues – in the Community of European Countries, Great Britain and the United States of America and the “wider” global world – that Hungary “veils” it-self – hides FACT, that its FUNCTIONALITY as a country, is far re-moved from being under Democracy.
Hungary – we KNOW the Propaganda machine of the Fidesz Party under its Leader and present Prime Minister of Hungary – Victor Orban – that is “spilling” over, it does appear, to use the President of Hungary – Katalin Novak as a “tool” – in an attempt to “claw back” gain a degree of respect – for the “Tarnished – Battered & Bruised” name of Hungary, inflicted upon us, by the Fidesz Party – present Government of Hungary led by the Prime Minister – Victor Orban.
Hungary – the trending Nadir we are on – who can SAVE us ???
Solidarity – big move – big push NEEDED & support of millions of Hungarians – could have greater positive future signs than negatives.
Do we just sit back – and go back in time – say to the likes of pre 1989 ?
Democracy – continue to live in the split & strangulated, fragmented version that Hungary as a country, is dictatorially ruled & govern ?
Hungary – we are CHALLENGED.
There is no blackmail. A typically false statement by the government. The Covid record recovery funds, around 5.6 million euros are frozen due to the rule of law issue (Hungary is not abiding by the Treaty/Contract it signed up to) and the bigger tranche, the reconstruction funds of around 21 billion euros are being held up until such time as procurement and contracts are transparent and the wholesale corruption stopped. As usual the Hungarian government are trying to deflect blame when in fact they are the authors of their own misfortune.
The EU has no business interfering in Hungary’s internal affairs. I am sure that when Hungary joined the EU, EU interference in internal affairs was missing even in the small print. Hungary should only deal with friendly nations and the EU members should go to ……….
