PM Orbán pledges to govern “a sovereign Hungarian state of free Hungarians”

"Hungary will continue to oppose mandatory migrant quotas, stand up for Europe’s Christian culture and fight to protect its borders,” PM Orbán said

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has pledged to govern “a sovereign Hungarian state of free Hungarians”.

During his inaugural speech upon being re-elected as prime minister of Hungary in Parliament yesterday, the prime minster said, “we must live with the confidence and dignity of a country that understands that Hungarians have given more to the world than that which they have received.”

The prime minister added that he wanted to convince neighboring countries to join forces and make the Carpathian Basin Europe’s “securest and fastest-developing” economic, trading and transport area.

“Over the past years, we have shown time and again that no one need fear Hungarians; whoever cooperates with us reaps the profits,” PM Orbán said.

"Hungary will continue to oppose mandatory migrant quotas, stand up for Europe’s Christian culture and fight to protect its borders.

“Thousands of paid activists, bureaucrats and politicians are working in Brussels today to have migration declared a basic human right. This is why they want to take away our right to decide for ourselves whom to take in…” PM Orbán added.

The prime minister said the government wants a strong Europe, peace and to reach mutually beneficial agreements with the European Union.

“We need the EU and the EU needs us,” he said. However, the government would represent the view that the bloc should function as an alliance of free nations. It should “give up its delirious nightmares of a united states of Europe … and come back down to reality,” he said.

“Now that I’ve taken my oath, I reaffirm to every single member of the nation, all fifteen million Hungarians … that all my actions will be dedicated to the service of our nation and country, the Hungarian people, Hungarian interests and Christian values,” he added.
