KABUL: (Middle East Press) The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban accuses the United States of interfering in Central Europe, saying Washington is pulling other countries into its conflict with Russia.
“The United States does not simply interfere, but is an active contributor in the internal political life of Central European countries,” said the Prime Minister during a television interview on Tuesday.
The Hungarian premier also emphasized tensions between the US and Russia over the conflict in Ukraine, relating them to Cold War-like conditions.
“They want to drag us into a conflict that we cannot come out of well, we have to stay out of it,” Orban stated.
He also said that Washington is looking to have influence in Hungary, and that the recent US entry ban on six officials over allegations of corruption was just a “cover story”.
In October, Washington slapped an entry ban on six Hungarian officials over alleged corruption.
The US and its allies accuse Moscow of sending soldiers into eastern Ukraine in support of the pro-Russian forces. Russia, however, denies the accusation.
