The European Union should not repeat the mistakes of the past in the case of countries in pre-accession phase - said Csaba Sogor in the debate about the EU’s support for candidate countries. The RMDSZ MEP named Romania as an example, who did not fulfill the promises made at the time of accession regarding minority protection: for instance, it has never adopted the minority protection act, it prevents the restitution of church properties. Many minority rights recorded in law still do not apply in practice.

Some member states of the EU are, without any official reasoning, blocking Romania’s and Bulgaria’s accession to the Schengen. With this, they are sending the message to the 25 million EU citizens of the two countries that they are secondary citizens, who don’t even deserve a reasonable explanation for the situation that has developed - said MEP Csaba Sógor on Monday in the plenary of the European Parliament, where he was making a case for the two member states joining the Schengen Area.

“In this ever-changing and stressed Europe there is a need for Christian values, consistency and experience” - argued Csaba Sógor at the meeting of the Democratic Alliance of Hungarians in Miercurea Ciuc. He expressed the need for the Hungarian community in Transylvania to live and grow in a Europe that is strong. He reasoned that if there is a problem with Europe, and if there is a problem with Brussels, it is so because a lot of Christians made the decision to abstain from politics, as if though politics was something sinful that should be avoided.
