Orban: Europe successful only if it remains European

Europe will be stable and successful only if it remains European, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in an interview with Austrian news portal oe24.at published on Sunday.

Commenting on next year’s European Parliamentary elections, he said this will be the first time that the nations of Europe vote on a common issue. Migration is an issue that concerns the entire continent and it will be in the focus of the election campaign everywhere, Orban said.

He expressed hope that those people will have the stronger voice who want to preserve and protect their national identity and Christian traditions. It would be good for Europe to have a common voice stating that Europe belongs to Europeans, he said.

“We have a culture and we have our religions and values. Religious freedom is important to us and anyone who wants to live here should accept that, and they must not be anti-Semitic,” Orban said.

“But if we do not clearly state our expectations then they will not respect our culture and our culture will perish. And chaos will arise,”

he added.

According to Viktor Orban, the European Union Hungary joined was “Helmut Kohl’s Europe”. The German chancellor didn’t want to let Brussels to “become an imperium”. But the EU has “taken another way”. He expressed hope that “we will return to Kohl’s Europe”. Then we will be successful, he stated.
