Orban causes panic in EU

(MENAFN) Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's recent diplomatic maneuvers have sparked controversy within the European Union, highlighting a perceived lack of coherent policy regarding the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. Orbán's visits to Kiev, Moscow, and Beijing have drawn attention to what some critics view as the European Union's failure to effectively address the urgent issue of ending the war in Ukraine.

Critics argue that the European Union, along with the broader Western world, lacks a robust strategy to resolve the conflict, as Orbán pointed out in an interview with Germany's Die Welt. He criticized the European Union for adopting what he described as America's "policy of war," suggesting that both Brussels and Washington have prioritized military solutions over diplomatic efforts and compromise.

Orbán's stance implies a skepticism towards current Western leadership and suggests that a different approach, possibly under a leadership akin to Angela Merkel's, could have prevented or swiftly resolved the conflict back in the spring of 2022. He argues that Merkel's diplomatic acumen could have averted the escalation into a large-scale war, contrasting sharply with the perceived failures of current European Union and United States policies.

The Hungarian Prime Minister's critique underscores broader concerns within the European Union about its role in international diplomacy and crisis management. Orbán's interventions have reignited debates over the effectiveness of Western strategies in conflict resolution and raised questions about the European Union's ability to assert a cohesive foreign policy stance on critical global issues like the Ukraine conflict.
