Welcome Address At The Prime Ministerial Reception On The Day Of Independent Hungary - Budapest 19th June 2019

"In the Hungarian political calendar today is the day of national independence. It won this title by beating a strong field: there are many other outstanding days. This fact bears witness to the honour derived from Hungarians having repeatedly and bravely fought for their independence. But there is another side to this coin: a people who can choose from more than one date on which to celebrate their independence must have lost it at least that many times. And indeed, we Hungarians are quite good at regaining independence and sovereignty, but we are quite weak when it comes to retaining independence."
