PM Orbán: Everyone should understand the need of mutual respect for the cultural, religious and political traditions of nations

PM Orbán said the valuable political lessons of the past decade could offer a basis for developing responses to the challenges of a new world order

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán underlined the global political lessons of the past decade at a closed forum of delegation heads at the second Belt and Road Forum in Beijing on Saturday.

Addressing the event, PM Orbán said the valuable political lessons of the past decade could offer a basis for developing responses to the challenges of a new world order.

The prime minister said foreign policies based on democracy export are counter-productive, generating problems and destabilizing the situation. He added that everyone should understand the need of mutual respect for the cultural, religious and political traditions of nations.

“It must be accepted that political systems different from ours can sometimes be more successful in economic terms, fight more effectively against poverty and be more competitive than ours,” the prime minister said.

PM Orbán said Belt and Road is an initiative based on mutual respect and the acceptance of cultural traditions. It grew to become the world’s largest economic development project over the past few years and offers the right response to challenges in a changing world order.
