Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said politicians who openly oppose the international liberal mainstream and stand up for their national interests have become targets of a worldwide witch-hunt.
Minister Szijjártó said on Facebook that in the United States, efforts are underway to undermine the most promising candidate in the next presidential election by bringing new charges against him, and in Slovakia, a senior politician of the party with the best chances going into the autumn parliamentary election has been arrested. Meanwhile, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, charges have been brought against the democratically-elected leader of the Serb community there, he added. “The international liberal mainstream doesn’t shy away from any kind of harsh intervention, even using the tools of the courts and law enforcement if it feels that its power is under threat. They fear the will of the people like fire,” the minister said. “Why don’t Transparency International, Amnesty or the Helsinki Committee speak out at times like these? Obviously because they’re on the payroll of the international liberal mainstream,” he added.
