Hungary holds the rotating presidency of the EU This warning comes after a visit to Moscow by Viktor Orban – whose country has held the rotating presidency of the EU since July 1 – which caused an outcry in Brussels.

“Are we allowed to have dinner or do we also need a mandate from the European Council for this?”, Viktor Orban’s political director immediately quipped on X. The Organization of Turkic States is an international organization of Turkic-speaking states, founded as the Turkic Council in 2009 by Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey. Hungary became an observer state in 2018. According to Viktor Orban, this organization close to Erdogan is “an essential pillar of East-West cooperation,” declared one of his collaborators on X. The EU rejected Turkey’s declarations in 2022 on the accession of the self-proclaimed Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus as an observer member of the organization. “The European Union rejects attempts by the Organization of Turkic States to legitimize the Turkish Cypriot secessionist entity, the so-called ‘Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’, not recognized internationally, as an observer” within of the organization, Josep Borrell reiterated on Saturday.
