Viktor Orban says EU foreign policy “ridiculous”

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban described the European Union’s current foreign policy as “ridiculous” and described the 27 members of the EU bloc as “pathetic paper tigers” and assured that he would continue to block this policy, the Spanish agency reports. EFE.

“The common foreign policy, motivated in recent years by domestic political interests, has become ridiculous,” Orban wrote in an open letter to German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and published on the official website of the Hungarian government.

The letter is a reaction from Orban after recent statements by Maas, who supported the suspension of the veto that every EU country can use in the Council of Europe.

The head of German diplomacy directly criticized Hungary for blocking several joint EU communiqués, mainly on relations with China and the Middle East.

“If they have ignored eight communiqués so far – as in the case of Beijing – they will laugh at the ninth. We look like embarrassing paper tigers and after our communiqués that have no consequences, everyone laughs at us, which is why we have to put an end to this practice of Brussels, which is limited to drafting communiqués “, added the Prime Minister of Hungary.

In this regard, he assured that he will continue to block such communiqués.

The Hungarian Prime Minister believes that, instead of foreign ministers, decisions in these diplomatic matters should be left to the heads of government and state of the EU member states.

“The European left, led by the German left, is again attacking Hungary in an unacceptable tone. Now, because Budapest did not want to sign a joint communiqué without political weight and seriousness in the case of Hong Kong. This will also happen if I propose it a hundred times, because it will have the same result a hundred times “, Orban promised.
