Viktor Orban backs anti-terrorism proposals of U.S. Republican presidential candidate
It is reported by EUobserver.
"I'm not part of Donald Trump's campaign. I'd never have thought it would occur to me that [Trump] would be the best choice for Europe and for Hungary", Orban said in a speech at a university fair in Baile Tusnad, in Romania, on Saturday (23 July), according to EUobserver.
"But I listened to the candidate and I must tell you he made three proposals to combat terrorism. As a European, I could have hardly articulated better what Europe needs."
Hungarian Prime Minister agreed with Trump call on for securing better intelligence gathering to stop radical Islam.
Orban said that European countries need better intelligence agencies. Orban agreed with Trump saying about the need to cease "regime change" policies.
Orban did not mention Trump's statements doubting the US commitment to protecting NATO allies in case individual member-countries do not increase defence spending. Meanwhile, Hungarian Prime Minister said he would support creation of the EU army.
Orban was re-elected in 2014 for a second four-year term. He says he wants to build an "illiberal state" and has citing Russia, China and Turkey among successful models.
