Hungarian Jobbik Party Against Economic and Political Isolation of Northern-Cyprus

he third largest political party of the Hungarian National Assembly, the opposition Jobbik party (Movement for a Better Hungary) submitted a draft resolution to Parliament on 12 May on resolving the political and economic isolation of Northern-Cyprus. The document was signed by Gábor Vona president and parliamentary fraction-leader, Tamás Hegedűs deputy-leader of the fraction and chairman of the Turkish-Hungarian friendship group of the Parliament and Márton Gyöngyösi, vice-chairman of the Parliament’s foreign affairs committee and leader of Jobbik’s foreign affairs committee.

The draft resolution recalls a line of discriminatory measures and historical episodes that resulted in full political and economic isolation of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC). It refers to the decisions made by the European Union in 2004 aimed at bringing a solution to this isolation.

The implementation of the proposed plan-of-action was practically prevented by Cyprus – that joined the EU in that year but the government of which de facto represents only the Southern, Greek-inhibited part of the island – and Greece. As referred to by the document, the peaceful unification of the island was blocked by the Greek population when it rejected the Annan-Plan, however it is the Turkish side seeking and supporting a peaceful resolution that is bearing the negative consequences.

The resolution invokes the Hungarian government to use its political weight derived from the EU presidency to initiate that the EU implements earlier decisions and commitments aimed at re-integrating Northern-Cyprus into the international economic flow, which endeavours have been effectively countered by politically opposing sides since 2004. It also calls upon the Hungarian government to establish connections with the government of TRNC and open a commercial consulate in Northern-Cyprus in order to advance bilateral economic ties.

Jobbik recently submitted another draft resolution to the Hungarian Parliament on the condemnation of the Armenian aggression against Azerbaijan, the cessation of the Armenian occupation and the return of the Azerbaijani refugees and internally displaced persons to their homes. The Foreign Affairs Committee of Parliament will soon discuss and vote on both draft resolutions.

Budapest – 12 May, 2011

Türkistan Ordusu:
They have had some problems with the right wing parties of other European countries as a result of such views. Jobbik's stance is friendly toward Turks.


To those of you who continue to post pro-Turanian sounding statements by Jobbik (and Jobbik has plenty of statements in many directions - but there is never any action), and believe that Jobbik party is true Turanist, or a true friend of Turks, here is another face of Jobbik, one it shows towards European countries. This does not mean Jobbik is against Turks, but rather effectively demonstrates the fact, that the Jobbik has many faces, and is a gang of opportunists, and only a true friend of it's own pockets.

Türkistan Ordusu:
There's more than one Jobbik, obviously. I had also read on their website that they considered themselves as conservative Catholic party. So, they could have a historical dislike for Turks. That's logical; there's also the same case in Turkey with many people.
In our case, we'll go on to support Hungarians against Slavs; no problem.
We recognize the borders of Greater Hungary and would like to see Hungarians covering back their territories in countries such as Romania or Slovakia.

Turkey is nowadays stronger in world's politics, economics than 10 years ago (16th economy in the world, while 10 years ago Turkey had the 26th position). However we, Turkish Nationalists, aren't stronger.
But the government sometimes uses our rhetorics to pick up more votes.
