Kocsis calls on opposition not to make ‘irresponsible remarks’

Mate Kocsis, parliamentary group leader of ruling Fidesz, has called on politicians of the opposition not to make "irresponsible remarks" or "voice dangerous ideas", and to "avoid spreading fake news".

In a Facebook post on Thursday evening, Kocsis called for “prudence and sober-mindedness” in the interest of maintaining the security for all Hungarians. “Left-wing politicians should keep that at the forefront of their minds,” he said.

“We all stand by Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, but the security of our compatriots is more important than anything else,” Kocsis said.

“Hungary has no interest whatever in interfering in an armed conflict between Russia and Ukraine, therefore left-wing politicians should not ask for Hungarian troops and arms to be sent to Ukraine,” he said. “This is irresponsible and would get Hungary involved in the war — though we won’t allow that to happen,” Kocsis said.
