“The people sitting in the European Parliament don’t care about Hungarian reality, and it is clear that a group of NGOs is working to paint a negative picture of Hungary”, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto told public news channel M1, Kormany.hu reports.

With relation to the fact that another European Parliament committee has criticised Hungary, he said: A show trial is underway against Hungary in the European Parliament, and the Sargentini Report is a “collection of qualified lies”. “These committees are raking up issues that Hungary and the European Union has long closed”, he added.

Szijjarto  also mentioned the amendment to the Nationality Act, which the Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has now withdrawn, explaining this must be just the first step if Ukraine is serious about its Euro-Atlantic aspirations.
