Péter Szijjártó gave an interview to CNN on Thursday, where reporter Christiane Amanpour attempted to spread the false statement that the Hungarian parliament had been "dissolved." “Why was it necessary?” she asked.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade replied that the reporter was now spreading another piece of fake news about Hungary, claiming that the parliament was suspended in Hungary, when in truth the Hungarian parliament had been in session for three days even that particular week.
Péter Szijjártó added that he had just informed the parliament about last week's meeting of NATO Foreign Ministers, regarding the meeting of the EU Council of Foreign Ministers, which was also held last week; plus, he continued, he had spoken in parliament five times just this week and had also attended a meeting of the Foreign Affairs Committee.
“Next week, the parliament will meet for another two days, and this will continue until June 30, as this is the normal timetable for the Hungarian parliament,” he said.
