Szijjártó Against ‘Mixing’ Sports, Politics


“Mixing sports with politics is extremely harmful and dangerous,” Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said in connection with German plans to illuminate in the rainbow colours the stadium in Munich where the national elevens of Germany and Hungary would play a match in the European football championship on June 23.

The rainbow initiative, supported by the city of Munich and Bavaria’s minister-president, is aimed at expressing support for tolerance and equal treatment.

Szijjártó insisted that “demands” for the rainbow colours clearly indicated a political intent because “everybody knows what it is all about”. “We in Hungary have adopted a law to protect Hungarian children and it is now being protested in Western Europe,” he said.
