Orban marks anniversary of Soviet troops’ departure

Prime Minister Viktor Orban hosted a reception to mark the 28th anniversary of the last Soviet soldier leaving Hungary’s territory in his office on Wednesday, his press chief Bertalan Havasi said.

“Countries that are able to face reality are only able to defend their independence,”

Orban told a group of politicians and artists invited to the event.

“But what is reality for a country of 10 million inhabitants, like ours? Should it consider the world outside as an enemy or as an ally,”

he asked.

“If someone is weak, the outward world is an enemy. But if it is strong, then that world becomes an ally,”

the prime minister concluded.
