Four Hungarian parties have become new members of the Centrist Democrat International (CDI), a Christian democratic political international of which ruling Fidesz had already been a member for some years, the head of the Fidesz group’s foreign affairs cabinet said. A CDI general assembly meeting approved the membership of the co-ruling Christian Democratic Party (KDNP) of Hungary, the Alliance of Vojvodina Hungarians of Serbia, the Democratic Alliance of Hungarians in Romania and the Cultural Alliance of Hungarians in Sub-Carpathia, Zsolt Németh said. A Fidesz delegation attended the meeting of the Executive Committee and the General Assembly on the island of Sal, Cape Verde, Németh, who was a member of the delegation, said.
The Hungarians held talks with the organisation’s secretary-general and with Ulisses Correia e Silva, the Prime Minister of Cape Verde, he added. There are significant opportunities for cooperation between Hungary and Cape Verde in water management, innovation and tourism, and it is important that the European Union’s development and migration policies should develop in this framework in the years ahead, he said.
