Hungary’s interest lies in having strong and successful neighbours, Gergely Gulyas, head of the Prime Minister’s Office, told a roundtable in Cluj-Napoca (Kolozsvar) in Transylvania on Monday.
Hungary would prefer to see the central European region strengthen together, Gulyas said. The “Hungarian card” is generally played by those in domestic political matters “who aren’t strong enough to build political capital on their own”, he said.
Gulyas said that when it comes to dialogue with other central European countries, the fact that Hungary had to hold talks with “leaders of countries dealing with constant internal crises and sovereignty-related problems” rather than countries that are strong and getting stronger was “unfavourable”.
But this cannot lead to a change in the goals of Hungary’s policy for ethnic Hungarians, he said.
