BERLIN, February 25. /TASS/. The European Union criticizes Russia while EU member-countries are unable to resolve the conflicts in the Middle East by themselves and even agree on a common policy on refugees, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in an interview with Germany’s Bild tabloid published on Thursday.
"We, Europeans, need to learn modesty. We will not be able to resolve the conflicts in the Middle East on our own," he said answering a question on Russia’s policy in Syria. "We criticize Russia at a time when the United States conducts negotiations with the Russian side on a ceasefire in Syria. The EU appears here, in the best-case scenario, as an outside observer," Orban said.
"We risk to expose ourselves to ridicule, because we are unable to come to an agreement on a common migration policy. Europe acts like an old woman who shakes her head reading scary news in a newspaper, but at the same time forgets to close the door to her house," the Hungarian official said.
