"We [Hungarians] are not a mixed race ... and we don't want to become mixed race. Countries where European and non-Europeans mingle are no longer nations", - Orbán stated.

"His statements recall a time I think we would all like to forget. They really show the true colours of the regime", - she said.
The Romanian MEP Alin Mituța also responded angrily to Orbán’s comments.
"Speaking about race or ethnic "purity", especially in such a mixed region such as central and eastern Europe, is purely delusional and dangerous. And so is Mr Orbán", - he wrote on Twitter.
