Szijjártó reacts to Swedish minister’s remarks
Hungary and Hungarians deserve greater respect from the Swedish European affairs minister, state secretary for foreign and trade affairs Péter Szijjártó said, in reaction to Birgitta Ohlsson’s criticism of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.
Ohlsson was reported as saying “Orbán’s lot are looking to Russia for their political model, and instead of a liberal democracy it treats the illiberal state and labour-based society as its values while handling defenders of rights and the civil sector as obstacles...” Szijjártó said in a statement that it is “unacceptable” that the minister had made up “pure lies” about "Hungary and the Hungarian people”.
