Neither the Hungarian government, nor Fidesz will compromise on the issues of migration and the protection of Europe and European Christian culture; on these we insist at any cost, Zoltán Kovács, the Minister of State for International Communication and Relations told the Hungarian news agency MTI on Thursday

Mr Kovács said this in response to the letter which Prime Minister Viktor Orbán sent to the leaders of the parties which initiated the expulsion of Fidesz from the European People’s Party (EPP).

The Minister of State said as long as there is a chance to stop the processes which seek to support migration and to change the attitudes of politicians within the EPP, “we on our part will do everything we can”. We are ready to reach reasonable compromises on all issues, with the exception of the need to stop migration and the protection of European Christian culture, he added.
