PM Orban calls for autonomy for ethnic Hungarians beyond borders

Standard

Hungary will stand up for its rights within the European Union and wants autonomy for ethnic Hungarians living beyond its borders in central Europe, including Ukraine, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Saturday.Orban, who was formally endorsed by parliament as prime minister for a second consecutive term after last month’s landslide election win, said ethnic Hungarians supported his policies to unite the nation “above the borders”.His previous government granted ethnic Hungarians in neighboring countries citizenship shortly after it took office in 2010, as part of his efforts to restore a battered sense of national pride.Orban, a 50-year-old former dissident against Communist rule, has also clashed repeatedly with the European Union over his go-it-alone policies in the past four years.
