Orbán: European politics need people ‘who want something’

European politics need people "who want something, who still have the energy, dedication and passion", Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said after talks with Santiago Abascal, the leader of Spain's Vox party, in Budapest on Friday.

While there is an increasing amount of “blah-blah” in European politics, statements repeated over and over again but followed by no action, Europe is increasingly losing its competetiveness, Orbán said.

Those who think along similar lines must work together; the cooperation between Hungary’s ruling Fidesz and Vox had been confirmed at the talks with Abascal, he added.

“We would like to see a right-wing turn in Europe, too,” he said.

Abascal reiterated the need for cooperation between those that fight for a much stronger Europe.

He said he deeply condemned the “persecution and blackmail” that Brussels employed against Hungary.

“Ideological discrimination is the real danger to European unity,” he said. It could also create a precedent because currently Hungary and Poland are in focus but Brussels bureaucrats could target any other country in the next moment, he added.
