Justice Minister praises Hungarian-German friendship

Judit Varga said “it is now being understood in German mainstream politics that an emphasis should be placed on resolving problems on the spot” and “joint development projects can be successful in preventing migration”.

The Justice Minister has highlighted how Hungarians and Germans continue to maintain a close friendship and cooperation covering many areas, such as defence policy and digitalization.

Following talks in Berlin, Judit Varga said the 30th anniversary of Hungary opening its borders which also paved the way for German reunification and the unification of Europe “offers a good opportunity to remark that our nations have been linked by close friendship spanning hundreds of years.”

After attending the Hungarian-German Forum, Varga said the event was important because it involved “political opponents sitting down for talks and discussing their differences”.

Commenting on migration policy, the Minister said “it is now being understood in German mainstream politics that an emphasis should be placed on resolving problems on the spot” and “joint development projects can be successful in preventing migration”.
