ORBÁN: HUNGARY IN FAVOUR OF INVOLVING EVERYONE IN EU DECISIONS

 

The European Union’s leadership positions have been decided, but Hungary has always been in favour of involving everyone in European decisions, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said after talks with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris. Orbán said it was “not good” if the most important positions for the next five years along with their corresponding programmes were divided up on a party basis “by those who appointed themselves for this”, warning that it was “never good” if there was a “governing party and an opposition, a majority and a minority” in the EU. Everyone should be included, he said, adding that this step had become “a coalition of the parties supporting the war and migration”, which Hungary had a duty to oppose.
