Orban calls for the unification of Central Europe in the fight for Christian values

Central European countries should unite to preserve their Christian roots, while Western Europe is experimenting with same-sex marriage, immigration and atheism, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said today. At the unveiling of the monument to the Treaty of Trianon, he recalled the defeat after the First World War, but stressed that they are now the winners of survival.

»Western Europe has given up … Christian Europe and is instead experimenting with godless universes, rainbow families, migration, an open society,« Orban said. He added that the people of Central Europe are fighting for Christian values, respecting work, national pride and family, while defending their borders from migrants, as reported by the Hungarian government..The monument was planned to be unveiled in May, but due to a pandemic, the ceremony was postponed to today.

The monument near the parliament is a 100-meter-long and four-meter-wide ramp, partly underground, and next to it is a plaque engraved with more than 12,500 names of places in Hungary in 1913. These are places that are part of Hungary today, as well as those that today belong to other countries. Among them is, for example, Murska Sobota.Orban also said today that all the places inscribed on the monument are the heirs of the state created by Stephen I. of Hungary. »One hundred years after the defeat in the First World War and the Treaty of Trianon, we now stand on the stage of European history as winners of survival.

There is no other people in the world who could survive such a period of hundreds of years,« he added.The peace treaty was concluded on 4 June 1920 at the Grand Trianon Palace near Versailles by the Entente forces and their allies on the one hand and Hungary as the successor to the defeated Austro-Hungary on the other, and entered into force on 31 July 1921. Hungary lost two-thirds of its territory, leaving more than three million Hungarians on the other side of the border.

Today’s border between Slovenia and Hungary also derives from the Treaty of Trianon.The Treaty of Trianon is a painful wound for many Hungarians, regardless of their political orientation, because they feel it is a great injustice.
