PM Viktor Orbán: "Europe still could not let the cold war mindset completely behind

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

At the Hungarian-Turkish business forum in Budapest Prime Minister Viktor Orbán remarked that the future of Europe depends on how east and west can cooperate.

"Europe still could not let the cold war mindset completely behind. We still think in terms of either the East or the West, one or the other. The West very slow in learning that this is an incorrect question" said Orbán while meeting Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

If the west can't find ways to cooperate with the east - the European Union and the non-Community countries - the "fantastic opportunity" which is inherent in east-west cooperation gets lost.

The prime minister also said Turkey has achieved significant success in economic development in recent years by placing the family in the center of this new policy.

Western countries believe that westerners can learn only from Westerners; those who have other view on the matter immediately attacked by the liberal media suggesting that the individual is "not reliable in terms of democracy," said Prime Minister Viktor Orbán remarking that this happens to him all the time.

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu arrived in Budapest on one-day official visit to strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries.

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said he have spent unforgettable time in Budapest. He pointed out that the task of politicians to remove all barriers between businesses and indicate where to face obstacles.

Hungary is closer to Turkey than even some neighboring countries. Over the past two and a half years we have held five business forums and two high-level strategic council meetings and as a result, cooperation between the two countries deepen more and more. The Turkish prime minister said Turkey supports Hungary's eastern partnership policy as well as Hungarian aspirations in the Eurasian region and considers it as a friend and European ally. He expressed his hope that Turkey can join the Schengen area, and as a result all obstacles will be removed between the two countries.
