Foreign Ministry Again Summons Swedish Ambassador
14 May 2019
Foreign ministry state secretary Levente Magyar has summoned the Swedish ambassador to Hungary over recent critical remarks by the Swedish prime minister about Hungary, the ministry said in a statement on Friday.
Calling the remarks “mendacious”, the state secretary said that “we most resolutely reject the Swedish prime minister’s baseless accusations.”
The Swedish government is “pro-migration and the reason they criticise us is because we say no to migration,” he said, adding that this is the basis of all the conflicts.
The “series of attacks” are unacceptable, Magyar said, adding that recently, “Sweden’s pro-migration social minister accused the Hungarian government of Nazism because of its family support scheme”. The prime minister’s remarks form part of this campaign, he added.
