ORBÁN: EU FOREIGN POLICY CLOUT DEPENDS ON LEADERS OF LARGE COUNTRIES

 

On the matter of the EU as a power in foreign policy, Orbán said the issue depended on the leaders of large European countries. “If the Germans, French and Italians are not coming together and making decisions and suggestions for the others,” but waste time on divvying up positions, change will not happen, he said. Orbán said his talks in Berlin, Rome and Paris had been the start of a “peace mission.” He had tried “to convince the leaders that they should take the lead,” otherwise Europe will disappear from the international arena, he warned.
