Jobbik MP: Nobody trusts Orbán in the East

Visits

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s Eastern Opening Policy raises questions of credibility, given that the prime minister’s opinion on eastern countries was the opposite of what it is now, prior to his winning the 2010 elections, radical far-right Jobbik MP Márton Gyöngyösi (pictured) told Hungarian online daily 444.hu today.

 “I have heard how Orbán is seen in the East, where everything is based on long-term trust” the MP said, adding that “this kind of mentality [that Orbán has] is not preferred there.” According to the Jobbik MP, in the East Orbán is regarded as a politician who is “not credible”. He implied that the only reason eastern countries cooperate with Hungary is based on “mutual interest”, which he termed an “unstable foundation for foreign policy.”
