Jobbik parliamentary Deputy-Leader Márton Gyöngyösi called on the Hungarian government to put national interests first and represent the economic interests of the country instead of promoting western economic interests.
The free trade agreement will deepens "Hungary and the entire Central-Eastern European region's economic colonization," by loosening the standards for privacy, food safety, consumer protection and further strengthening the position of powerful western corporations in the country at the expense of consumers, workers, local farmers, small and medium-sized enterprises read the communiqué.
According to Jobbik, Brussels is under pressure from the powerful industry lobby urging officials to opening up markets for questionable quality American agricultural and food products.
Because Hungary has the power of veto in the adoption of the agreement, Jobbik calls upon the government to clarify its position in relation to the free trade negotiations and by doing so reject it and stand up for the strategic interests of the Hungarian nation - concludes the communiqué.
