1:15 pm
then examine about international right you have a right to go anywhere you walk us forces have trained fighters from the syrian democratic force on how to treat prisoners and some of first are under way to repair treat at least some of the women and children it's a difficult situation and very tragic expression for the children i know a lot of countries have expressed interest in bringing the children back to their country depending on where the fighters are from but right now that problem still need to be solved rather than just putting them in a camp but many countries do not want anything to do with the people who lived under rice and rights activists see injustice breeds contempt and instability and the danger from a lack of free trial and indifference from home countries is a good. cycle of vengeance and not something that groups such as i still have taken advantage of some of the data on the iraq syria border. presidential hopefuls in brazil have concluded their campaigns ahead of sunday's vote supporters of

1:22 pm
democracy equality the rule of law and respect for human rights including the rights of persons belonging to minorities the e.u. accuses the hung garion government led by the prime minister viktor orban of breaching those values by passing anti refugee laws manipulating the media disregarding government corruption and removing independent judges budapest annoys the accusations and defends its policies but with european parliament elections scheduled to take place in may next year could the divisions that have been exposed lead to political change across the u. we find out as peter c.r. hung garion foreign minister talks to al-jazeera. peters the foreign minister of hungary thank you for talking to al-jazeera again it's while since we spoke to you last your country is facing proceedings never
1:23 pm
before invoked in the european union it's called article seven and it's because a country is breaching the core values of the e.u. that's what they've got to decide on there are some other thoughts by public. you still signed up to those core european values of course we are and we are not while letting them. the report which was pushed through the european parliament voted yea i read it i read it unlike so many people who are speaking about it but i read it from the very beginning to the very end and then it has a list of sixty nine sixty nine points and sixty nine accusations against hungary out of reach for thirteen points have been totally agreed upon by the government and the european commission agreed upon about nineteen points there are negotiations going on between the commission and the hungary and government as it
1:24 pm
is normally the procedure in the european union and there are some thirty seven points which are qualified lies i mean i i went through all of them because i represented the government twice on the committee meetings which prepared the meal you had your chance to make your case yeah i fly to the european parliament made the comment four hundred forty eight millions voted against you just one thousand seven voted for yeah and you know here's a cheating because you just read this you don't read abstentions forty eight yet and and this is the key issue here normally according to european contracts the way decisions are being made by the european parliament is the following you have the yes votes. and on the other side you have the no votes and the abstentions and for some reason this case our leaders of european parliament made the decision to leave the votes of abstentions out of consideration if you add the abstentions this
1:25 pm
resolution is not best but obviously the rules of the european parliament are that you don't the abstentions otherwise or you go you do that's that's that's actually why it was cheating because you do at the abstentions just look at the treaty very right only over political parties in the european parliament were guilty of cheating it was a cheating perhaps we should widen this because this is part of a big discussion i think going on in europe and going on in the world about the way the world should be governed and it's come up in the recent un general assembly in new york very different visions given for example by the french president emanuel mccraw and the us president donald trump he's talking about a series of powerful sovereign nations and going against global governance whereas the french president is talking about keeping up multilateralism which side are you on. well actually we always take hungary on site so i the live is simplifications
1:26 pm
where there are i'm pro american or pro french because i'm pro hungary and but what i can tell you is that there are many points in the foreign policy of a donald trump which i respect a lot first of all we do respect that that he respects silver anything he respects strong states he respects countries sticking to their identity they are culture they are a heritage. you know when when when when the french president speaks about multilateralism and i look at these european policies i am a little bit concerned because the the measures he would like to see in the european union would be rather unfavorable for hungary and comes with tax had one. and all of this kind of stuff you know and migration are absolutely on two different sides the president and his vision about europe when it comes to
1:27 pm
migration it comes to social issues when it comes to taxation when it comes to economic issues is totally totally showing to another direction compared to our vision about the future of your let's explore this a little further i'm just going to read you a quote from president micros address to the general assembly nationalism always leads to defeat if courage is lacking in the defense of fundamental principles international order becomes fragile and this can lead us as we already seen twice to global war what do you make of that i don't want to commend the virtues of the french president because they speak for themselves but it's about nationalism is national go to good or bad thing but what does nationalism mean in this regard i mean i don't know what he was speaking about because i don't know his fortes what i can tell you is that we are under accusations in europe many times of being nationalistic. another thing is the following we are a country which never will give up the right to make the
1:28 pm
decision about the future of hungary on our own the will never give up the right to make a decision on our own between we would like to live together in our country and even never give up the right to decide about whom we would like to enter whom we would like to let and thirty three of our country and whom we don't. reveal all this be a nation of freedom fighters we don't like call on the elitism sometimes on the french foreign minister a french president speaks about hungary they speak as if you were a colony of them so i think a mutual respect mutual respect it is what is lacking. from the global for global set of foreign policies currently but as we go into a form of mutual government for some things that is what the european union is some areas yeah decided at the european level yeah that's right that's right we are part of european union meaning that's part of our silver and they think. we practiced
1:29 pm
together with the european union no problem with that the problem is with intentions to change the treaties which direct the operation of the european union change of the treaties in a democratic way there are some intentions for that and this is something that we reject we fing that european union needs to undergo some reforms because obviously if you look at the performance of the european union you see that the competitiveness is is versioning no question and in order to become again competitive in the in order to be able to be successful in this global race of economy and trade we have to make some changes this is what we understand and there is a debate now between the e.u. we do good reason by the way because there are at least five to manders history type of challenges ahead of us like migration like the friend of terror then there just security of war in ukraine so it's obvious it's obvious that we have debate about these issues because eventually we have debate about the future of europe if
1:30 pm
not now when there are historic challenges so i don't think that having a debate within the e.u. about the future would be bad news bad news is that the democratic right of taking part in this question's is kind of supposed to be taken away from some countries which do not represent the mainstream that's that's a problem that's very anti democracy let me take you back to april and the election you had a very successful result yes record turnout seventy percent of the people showed up and we received forty nine point six percent of the vote so it means for continuous election for a continuous constitutional majority in the parliament so you can change the constitution again change what you want you want to if you want to tell me was it a free and fair election of course there was an election mission from the o. s. c.e. that produced a pretty damning report it said there was intimidating and xenophobia rhetoric media bias and opaque campaign finance. but i mean just simply not true
1:31 pm
simply not true there was free and fair elections you know furred continuous time we won a constitutional majority. these allegations are just being serious to restore it to say that if you had been to hungary at that than you would have been able to say that this is nonsense but this was a monitoring mission from a respected body yes yeah but i say it's nonsense what about the claims that the public television clearly favored your party and that there was a government information campaign that went out two weeks before the poll that was against migration and matched one of the main themes of your party's platform it's all over the world that governments run. information companies about the most important issues when the most important issue for your party which you want to get elected on this is the most important issue in hungary currently if it was not the most important issue then we wouldn't have received forty nine point six percent of
1:32 pm
the votes in the country and i'm telling you what it migration was not. the most important issue all in hungary if you look at the last five national elections in europe you know there was only austria slovenia hungary and then sweden in all in all countries migration was the number one topic during elections with a good reason by the way because this is something that bothers a people in europe with a good reason because people christian political correctness i have been all around this debate and it a good reason because i think people really want honest and straightforward speeches in this industry god so and if you see the results in hungary in still be in the in austria endure in in italy in all four cases those parties have gained the most votes which we have a credible program how to how to. how to protect the security of the country how to
1:33 pm
protect the security of the citizens of the given country clearly one issue is media freedom it came up in that report do you already quoted you said it read it from beginning to end in terms of the media in hungary most of the media is friendly to your government. it's not true look at the internet i mean come on i understand hungary a language is very difficult so foreigners can be misled very easily by saying such kind of lies but if you can speak hungary i'm and if you look at the internet i mean you will hardly find hard to find government friendly our web page is the most the most viewed or most watched or most read internet the web page is very heavily . critical or hostile whatever to the government when it comes to television when it comes to television the morse you television is have only had really hostile that r.c.l. yeah haven't you hostile so what are we speaking about you know these are these are
1:34 pm
against perceptions that that freedom of speech freedom of gather assembly is being violated no it's not you know not only the european union but the united nations put together some reports saying that freedom of assembly is taken away from hungary and people i went to see the commissioner i sat. to the table beater and said look i came here because there is a very serious issue you wrote in your report that in hungary freedom of assembly is taken away from the people could you please tell me what case you are referring to and she had no clue she said that you know i just came two days before does report was issued and and idea that it's was a staff to put together but come on you know this is this is very very irresponsible they have behavior uses the same thing about the us see no say about the european commission is this some conspiracy against you i don't know whether it's conspiracy but these are lies i don't know whether they do it to get there or not but you know it's a very serious because you see it here many people watch this program and thank you
1:35 pm
for invitation because i can explain and then then such kind of things are said about hungary that there is no freedom of media and then i ask you please tell me what journalists what media outlets have been under torture or have to suffer have has anyone applied censorship it's about ownership as you teach and whether there is no news of friends of the prime minister well we can go back to communism and say that private ownership is not the law of the media but do we really want to do so ok let me raise i don't want to have an answer just what happens if a private owner sells a newspaper for example is that the fault of the government or i tell you what there was a daily newspaper. which was partly owned by the socialist party no one had a problem being that no one raised the issue at how it is possible that the leftist party partly owns a daily paper you know isn't it interesting that whenever
1:36 pm
a left or liberal parties are involved there no one raises this question it's so we book rhetoric it's so double standard and so ridiculous that i'm going to raise another area which is the judiciary and this time i'm going to raise something that was a report from hungary from the national judicial council in may it casts doubt on the autonomy of the garion judiciary and damning an analysis about the way that the senior judges have been hired and the role of hand. who is a long time friend of your prime minister yes and so the problem is well the problem it will create a problem and the problem is that judges aren't being fairly selected what do you mean under judges who are who are favorable to the government are being selected was the suggestion in this report who are day judges judges who sit i don't
1:37 pm
know on crew criminal cases on know any judges who have been selected because of their friendship or not friendship to the government there are many rulings on the courts which we'd bowl like but as an as an individual citizen i think i have the right to like or dislike court decisions as a politician i cannot comment because then i would harm or while late the independence of judiciary but i don't know about any judges who would have gained positions just because being funded to government. but you reject that allegation even though it came from the main group of hungary and judges there's a big debate about the reform of the judicial system within the judicial system so this is not a debate between government and judges this is a professional debate within the judicial system getting back to the issue of migration that you've had so much criticism on in fact our first interview was in
1:38 pm
twenty fifteen at the height of the of the migration crisis and you had some very tough questions there then since then you've basically given up letting people into hungary isn't that right we do not allow any illegal migrants to the territory of the country what about refugees we have a field of the green border so the only way you can enter the third tour of the country is a legal way so go there to be a border crossing point to show your travel documentation and you can come in and then what about here if you're a refugee but how can you come how can you be a refugee if you if you are surrounded by peaceful countries well sometimes countries fallen to here to let refugees in what do you mean they take refugees as a part of a research program yes but my question i'm not taking any warning you're not allowed to get on it no or don't want to take part in that i can tell you something . those people who arrived to hungary and those four hundred thousand about which you know we've spoken to for some fifteen years but it was in the height under and they were coming through country diego yes they they came through at least five
1:39 pm
peaceful countries so my question is. whether anyone could show me can't because they have rooted it anyone could show me any point in international regulations which would say that you have a right to wake up in the morning dick a country that you would like to live in any nora to get there while it's your ease of borders it's not a human the right the human right is that you are in trouble you have to you are forced to leave your home you go to the first safe place where you're going to be taken care of but it's not written anywhere that you are allowed to lade the border between two peaceful countries because you want to get through know those people who came to us came from turkey greece must donya sometimes bog area serbia croatia five six safe countries my question is how can you be a refugee after you while eight borders between five safe countries my question is about refugees who need to find somewhere to live and the european union has come up with ideas to spread them around europe right now or as i understand it from the
1:40 pm
latest statistics i can find you have ten million people in your country and three thousand five hundred fifty five refugees living in a hungry you're not taking your fair share there are people who are fleeing the war they're fleeing famine don't some of them isn't it fair for you to take in some we are taking part in the burn sharing because respond already more than a billion euros on protecting the sort of the border of the european union this is number one number two we have launched a program which is called hungary helps we are spending millions of euros on helping the community is in the middle east. because you know when when the bishops come to us the christian bishops come to us from the middle east they always ask us please do not help our people to leave the area because our communities will be eliminated please help us to be able to return and please help us to be able to get
1:41 pm
stronger their you know what you said our bishops you know you only have been helping christians we have a special program to help christians and we are not muslims. we are a christian country we feel responsible for the for the christian people and these are no other no other targeted program for the christians we do it so what we do is the following we have rebuilt religious for the christians their day used to be a living for centuries and they were forced to leave. villages where they can return we are building schools there are covering expenditures of hospitals are building cultural institutions we are giving hundred scholarships every year fully finest by the hungry and state to be able to get more to be able to be more competent more competitive how can you say that we don't take the fair share what about corruption transparency international puts you below montenegro on its list of corruption montenegro can't get into the e.u.
1:42 pm
because it's too corrupt what do you make of some allegations for example that the your prime ministers used public funds and channel e.u. funds to lake palatal to two areas where he has close friends and relatives with properties that's as being a ridiculous number and ridiculous through are to accuse the prime minister of such kind of issues number two is being ridiculous he's not be all he's not in on the accusation is the anyone could be guilty of something but this trip but it's but it's a it's a lie that the montenegro is not a member of european union because of because of corruption there is not true but simply a lie and it's a simply a lie that the prime minister uses probably funds for a private reasons it's not. so i have to say i have to reject that and it's and it's a really a scandal that the such kind of things can be said to be honest and these are the sort of consequences that these are these are the sort of allegations that are out there some of these things are in that report that went to the european parliament
1:43 pm
what happens next because clearly there's a procedure in europe and what are you going to do next well you know in this case the general affairs council which is the body of the ministers responsible for europe integration of the member states comes together and based on the viel of the presidency which is now austria and then you have hearings one or two. three incidentally is run by a conservative government that is in the same european peoples party as you one that and and and they didn't back you one vote one party of them one party of them is number of the open people's party. then they didn't back you that's important and it's part of the chancellor so well you must be disappointed you know i understood that friendship and politics must not be computers anymore but anyway so . one or two hearings and then afterwards the real be put on the agenda of the
1:44 pm
council itself you know the gathering of the heads of state and government of the european union and there you name a decision must be made if if any sanctions will be applied and i've got other people on your side of course we do the polish and the czech prime polish government and czech prime minister made it very clear that they would veto any kind of sanctions against hungary we are not the only country against which this this procedure is going on because the similar kind of procedure has been going on against poland but this it's much it's in a much more advanced face let's with this way because it has been started as far as i remember last year already and we made it very clear that we would veto any kind of sanctions against the boers because because the the critics on pause are just being ridiculous i mean that's on the reform of judiciary and i i'm not british sure that all those who put these allegations on the polish have read. the new laws and understood the reform procedure i have spent
1:45 pm
a lot of time with that because i really wanted to be sure what i say about their issue and and i really studied they are a judicial reform they want to make it they want to make procedures quicker they definitely made decisions about the highest score but i mean that they are and they are a government they are directed by the people so they have to govern the country to the satisfaction of the people and i don't see that they would have committed anything against the again the contract of the european union we have european elections next year do you feel that perhaps the european parliament action could backfire given there are lots of populist nationalist parties around europe the potentially might support you. i think that that the european parliament elections we have a big stake i mean i i would say the biggest ever and it's going to take place next may a totally new type of commission and and i'm pretty sure that the new set up of european
1:46 pm
parliament will be established do you see some split in the european union or will parties like yours and governments like yours try to change europe from within what i can tell you is that we take part in the debate about the future of the european union there are two concepts at least in the rivalry in the federalist tick over a mystic we see how we feel and we we definitely take part havoline the debate with you represent our position central european countries have very similar kind of mindset in this regard pretty much common sense i think it's not without a good reason that the central europe in the region is now among the most successful regions of the european union if you look at the growth figures for example our average growth is twice as high as the european average overall so we tried to be a girlfriend to the to the. union and we see very all these debates and all but i think you know having a debate about the future of e.u. is a very democratic thing there are some that say if hungary was not
