Szijjarto: Government to continue representing Hungarian interests in 2024

Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto on Monday said the government would continue to represent Hungarian interests "and not give in to blackmail, even though 2024 will be a crucial year, and we know the pressure will be enormous."

Szijjarto called 2024 “the Super Bowl of politics” on Facebook on Monday. “Never before have 78 countries held elections in the span of one year, directly impacting nearly 4 billion people worldwide,” he added.

Hungarian citizens will vote in the European parliamentary elections, but hundreds of millions will go to the urns in the US, Russia, India, Mexico and the UK, he said.

“From our point of view, the US and EU elections are particularly important, as they raise the hope of replacing war, weapon deliveries and senseless human sacrifice with brokering peace,” he said.

Hungary will fight “to open Brussels’s eyes” to give the EU an opportunity to correct its errors in leadership, he said.

Szijjarto said this year’s events would see a new world order take shape, “so it will take larger efforts than ever to guarantee the physical and economic security of the country, so that Hungary can belong among the winners of that new era.”

“The international liberal mainstream has always exerted enormous pressure on us, but we prevailed, and it always turned out to have been the right choice,” he said.
