Hungary reacts to terrorist attacks in France. Western European politicians should stop spending their time debating the rule of law in Hungary and Poland and instead defend their own citizens from terrorist attacks, said Hungarian Justice Minister Judit Varga.

“Enough of the hypocrisy! Enough of Western European politicians rising and laying with the Hungarian and Polish rule of law, instead of defending their own citizens while terrorist attacks and anti-Semitism happen successively in Western Europe,” said Varga in reaction to the terrorist attacks in France.

According to national news agency MTI, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, expressing his condolences, saying “both the attacks of today and in recent weeks have clearly shown that our common European culture, way of life and values ​​are in the crosshairs of extremist terrorism.”

Hungary’s prime minister offered to “join forces to defend traditional European values ​​and the traditional European way of life.” (Vlagyiszlav Makszimov | EURACTIV.com)
