PM Orbán: Europe will be stable and successful only if it remains European

The prime minister said migration is an issue that concerns the entire continent and it will be in the focus of the election campaign everywhere

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has said Europe will be stable and successful only if it remains European.

During an interview with Austrian news portal oe24.at, the prime minister said the European Parliamentary elections will be the first time that the nations of Europe vote on a common issue.

PM Orbán said migration is an issue that concerns the entire continent and it will be in the focus of the election campaign everywhere.

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

“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,” PM Orbán 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.
