Strache said that by defending its southern borders, Hungary is also protecting Austria. In the summer of 2015 Hungary erected a 175 kilometres temporary fence along its southern border with Serbia and Croatia in an effort to halt the wave of illegal immigration.
Strache also said that instead of a centralized system, Europe needs a federal system which recognizes Christian values and is capable of defending itself. He also said that he was convinced that at the upcoming European elections patriotic parties will gain further ground and they may even be able to form a faction that could have a majority in the European Parliament.
PM Orbán said in its economic policy the European left was conducting a Socialist program and Hungary has had more than enough of Socialism and does not want Brussels to force it upon them. He also said that due to Manfred Weber’s insulting comments towards Hungarians, the Budapest government cannot support his bid for the presidency of the European Commission.
