Szijjártó Awards Hungarian Order of Merit to Far-Right Dutch Politician Geert Wilders

“The liberal mainstream tries to paint a picture of us Hungarians as isolated people who have no friends in Europe. This is very much not the case,” stated Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, who underlined his point that the Hungarian government does have important and influential friends in Europe with the following lines:

Geert Wilders has never been afraid to take up any position, whether it be about standing against migration, protecting the sovereignty of European countries, or the importance of peace and the failure of sanctions. It is an honor to present the Commander’s Cross of the Hungarian Order of Merit to him today.
