Hungary’s foreign minister Péter Szijjártó has enthusiastically announced a new phase in his nation’s relationship with Brazil after a conference with his counterpart, Ernesto Araujo.
Szijjártó, who spoke of the primacy his country places on personal relationships in its international alliances, stated that the “exceptional political understanding” shared by the two nations leads them to desire developing “closest ever” mutual ties.
Hungary and Brazil are both led by strong nationalist leaders, who have made fighting globalism, Marxism, and liberalism the foremost priorities of their popular governments. Hungary’s Viktor Orban attended Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro’s inauguration earlier this year, which featured a veritable “who’s who” list of nationalist leaders from across the world.
In the past, Brazil has floated the idea of creating a new international nationalist pact, centered around a “nucleus composed of the three largest Christian countries” of the US, Brazil, and Russia. The larger alliance would also include nations such as Japan, India, Italy, and the Visegrad group, which is composed of several Eastern European nations including Hungary.
Similarly, Szijjártó described Brazil and Hungary’s shared Christian values and desire to defend Christian communities across the world. In addition, the two nations are also united in their opposition to mass immigration, respect for national sovereignty, and hostility to tyrannical globalist projects like the UN.
The two ministers also negotiated cooperation on other practical matters which will draw their nations closer together, such as student and cultural exchange programs, and cooperation on agricultural research and in economic projects that will facilitate trade and mutual benefit.
