Democratic Round Table expresses pro-EU views

History

The Democratic Round Table called for all the citizens and organizations of Hungary who believe in democracy “to manifest their will to reaffirm” the country’s “correct and consistent relation” to the country’s allies and their values on the occasion of the upcoming visits of Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, the entity announced in a press release today.

“Since 2010 the Orbán government turned against the commitments of the country and increasingly parted ways with the norms of the NATO and the EU. While enjoying all the advantages coming from the membership of those organizations, the Hungarian government implements their requirements only half-heartedly,” the statement says. 

The press release adds that “without the NATO military strength Hungary would be vulnerable, while without the EU's cooperation system, material support and its open labor market, the country's economy would be in an unsustainable position”.
