Hungary’s FM says European Parliament resolution a ‘new attack by Soros network’

Peter Szijjarto

Hungary’s foreign minister dismissed a European Parliament resolution condemning the country on Wednesday, saying that it amounted to a “new attack on Hungary by George Soros’ network.”

Earlier on Wednesday the European Parliament condemned what it called a “serious deterioration” in the rule of law and fundamental rights in Hungary.

“European institutions are clearly unable to accept the fact that… the government of Hungary is continuing to practice a migration policy that is exclusively aimed at ensuring the security of Hungary,” Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said. Prime Minister Viktor Orban has long criticized civil society organizations funded by Hungarian-born Soros, accusing them of opposing his tough migration policies.
