We are all Attila's grandchildren

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

Jobbik pleased to hear that PM Viktor Orbán too dared to quote Jobbik President Gábor Vona's celebrated saying about King Attila, at a press conference held jointly with Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Tuesday. At the event, both the Turkish and the Hungarian prime ministers used the term "We are all Attila's grandchildren," several occasions. The saying introduced into public awareness by Jobbik Chairman Gábor Vona who used the phrase several times in the past.

The Turkish prime minister thanked that Hungary is committed to Turkish accession into the EU adding that "We are all Attila's grandchildren and oddly enough Europeans still looking at us with suspicion."

Jobbik MP Lajos Kepli said that they would be more happy if the government adopted the Jobbik party's foreign policy as well rather than just its rhetoric.

Kepli added that Jobbik is pleased to see the deepening of Hungarian-Turkish relations, but we expected more concrete results especially, regarding the construction of a new gas pipeline as Russia can stop gas exports through Ukraine anytime. If this happens there is no alternative transport lines left, which may result in a very grave situation in Hungary.

The Turkish Stream pipeline must reach Hungary, because Hungary then can export the excess natural gas to Western Europe.

Jobbik welcomes the sister city agreement between Ankara and Budapest and closer Hungarian-Turkish relations.

Kepli recalled that Gábor Vona in 2013 suggested that in addition to the Finno-Ugric day the government should designate a Turanian brotherhood day as well, but then, the Fidesz majority voted the bill down.

We are pleased that Viktor Orbán's opinion seems to have changed in this question, so we re-submit the draft resolution in the National Assembly said the Jobbik politician.
