POTÁPI: HUNGARIANS READY TO FIGHT FOR HOMELAND ANYTIME

 

Hungarians have learnt in the past thousand years which issues they must make sacrifices for: the homeland, freedom and family, the state secretary in charge of policies for Hungarian communities abroad said, marking the Day of National Cohesion. “We’re ready to fight anybody anytime” for these values, he added. Árpád János Potápi told an event in Dombóvár, in south-west Hungary, that Hungarians would not fight “for foreign interests or be pushed into servitude against the interests of our children … And we’ll take the gloves off in the face of anyone who wants to push that down our throats”. “The election this weekend should also be a time for … [saying] no to war,” he added.
