Tamás Menczer, the foreign ministry state secretary for external relations, has called on Slovakia’s foreign minister to be “respectful in how he talks about Hungarians”, MTI said. Rastislav Káčer said in an interview that PM Viktor Orbán supports Russian propaganda. He added that Hungary is the only European Union Member State which is not a Western-type democracy. He highlighted that the European Parliament and the European Committee think the same.
Káčer added that regardless of what he says, a “shitstorm comes from Hungary”. Even George Soros might envy that, he added sarcastically, telex.hu said.
“It is known that Foreign Minister [Rastislav] Káčer is only comfortable when he regularly speaks of the Hungarian prime minister in appalling terms,” Menczer said on Facebook. “But we must remind Slovakia’s foreign minister that Viktor Orbán was elected by the Hungarian people with record support for the fourth consecutive term. The decision of the Hungarian people must be respected, even by the Slovakia’s foreign minister.”
Menczer said Orbán was in favour of peace and against sanctions, noting that after the crises caused by migration and coronavirus, Hungarians had entrusted him with managing the current crisis as well.
“This is the kind of stability that is not really characteristic of Slovakia,” Menczer said. “Perhaps Foreign Minister Káčer would be better served focusing on his own country, which is constantly in a governing crisis.”
