Elect those who deem indigenous minorities more important than illegal immigrants in the EP elections, says official

“A student asked why people in Brussels talk a lot less about indigenous minorities that about illegal immigrants. The comment is justified, and the Hungarian government also views this with outrage and bewilderment,” the State Secretary said

Tamás Menczer has stressed the importance of electing those who deem indigenous minorities more important than illegal immigrants in the European Parliament elections on May 26th.

Menczer outlined his wish during a lecture on the challenges facing the European Union and the unique elements of Hungarian foreign policy at the Sapienta Transylvanian Hungarian University of Sciences in Csíkszereda (Miercurea Ciuc ) on Friday.

“A student asked why people in Brussels talk a lot less about indigenous minorities that about illegal immigrants. The comment is justified, and the Hungarian government also views this with outrage and bewilderment,” the State Secretary said.

“What is at stake at the May 26th European Parliament (EP) elections is that people are elected to the EP for whom indigenous minorities are more important than illegal immigrants,” he said.

Menczer also spoke about the fact that the government wants to continue practicing Hungarian foreign policy, meaning that Hungarian interests must be recognized, and ways of representing those interests must be found in a changing world that is burdened by conflicts.

He also said that standing up for cross-border Hungarians is one of the most important tasks of national policy, but Budapest does not want to dictate what cross-border Hungarian communities should do, but instead would like to respond to their requirements.
