Szijjarto: Cooperation of sovereigntist, partiotic forces needed in Europe

Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto on Tuesday called for cooperation between sovereigntist and patriotic forces in the European Union, saying that the liberal mainstream was "trying to rule over Europe, and are clearly divvying up positions without considering the will of the voters."

Szijjarto met Christian Hafenecker, a Secretary General of Austria’s Freedom Party (FPO), and said that FPO and Fidesz had both won their respective European parliamentary elections, “because people voted for patriotic, sovereigntist, pro-peace parties that oppose a European super-state”.

FPO and Fidesz are cooperating closely and have similar stances on the solutions to the challenges facing Europe, he said.

“We both think that further curbing member states’ competencies is unacceptable… [and] Europe should swiftly change its pro-migration stance.” FPO and Fidesz also agree that “Ukraine needs peace, not weapon deliveries… and that Europe has shot itself in the leg with the sanctions,” he added.

Szijjarto said Fidesz agreed with the FPO that Europe needed anti-migration, pro-peace policies, and its competitiveness must be restored.
