Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has said that in the midst of terror and turmoil, Hungary is an island of stability in the western world.
In light of the terrorist attack in Berlin, the prime minister said it is unprecented that Christians are being killed in the heart of Europe during Christmas.
According to MTI, PM Orbán said it is obvious that nothing can stay as it is in regards to the migrant crisis and Brussels must make a change. People who arrived in Europe illegally must be returned to a place outside Europe and the borders must be protected, he added.
Nobody would have believed a year ago, that the UK would exit from the European Union and “the Clinton clan, the traditional party of American intellectuals” would fall out of power, PM Orbán said. According to the prime minister, there was a “rebellion” in the world’s two model democracies which will continue in 2017 and western democracies will go through a “year of rebellion”.
Hungary can be an island of stability because “we have asked for people’s opinion and protected the country from illegal migration in 2015 and 2016,” the prime minister said.
PM Orbán said the European dream is over and whereas in the past decisions had to be made about how to distribute money, currently a general feeling of austerity is the norm.
Western Europe has been taking in migrants for decades but their integration has been an “obvious failure”. Economic slow-down, crime, terror, migration, the inability to make decisions and insincere communication have all added up in the western world and the leaders have not found a solution, PM Orbán added.
In response to a question about the nomination of the president, he said President János Áder is highly respected in the ruling Fidesz party and if he is willing to take the post again, he will be nominated.
