Official Accuses Croatian Politicians of Disrespect for Hungary

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, June 9, 2020 – State-secretary in the Hungarian Foreign Ministry, Tamas Menczer, said that he expected more respect from Croatian politicians who have recently criticised Prime Minister Viktor Orban and spread fake news.

Menczer claimed that his country had made a great contribution to Croatia’s economy because last year, 644,000 Hungarians visited Croatia and generated 3.2 million bed nights, the Hungarian MTI news agency has reported.

He underscored that Hungarian oil and gas company MOL is “involved in the largest investment in Croatia” and the Hungarian Electricity Works MVM is “about to buy 6.75 billion cubic metres of gas from the LNG terminal on Krk Island.”

Considering the above, we expect more respect from Croatian politicians voicing baseless criticism and spreading fake news about Hungary,” said Menczer as carried by MTI and added that that conduct  is “especially difficult to understand at a time when consultations are underway about opening borders, an extremely important move for the Croatian tourism season.” 

This is the second case of accusations made against Croatia’s politicians by officials from Budapest in two days.

On Monday, Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto accused some media outlets in Croatia of tendentiously spreading an incorrect translation of an inscription on a monument unveiled in Hungary on Sunday and of accusing Hungary of allegedly laying claims to Rijeka.
