Hungary Recalls its Ambassador from Netherlands

Outgoing Dutch Ambassador to Hungary, Gajus Scheltema has in a magazine interview compared the rhetoric of the Hungarian government to that of Islamic terrorists. Hungary has now recalled its Ambassador from the Netherlands and has suspended contact at the Ambassadorial level with the Netherlands indefinitely.  Dutch Foreign Minister, Bert Koenders said that the Netherlands does have some criticism of Hungary which does not accept refugees and has very strict regulations for NGO’s. That, however, has nothing to do with the matters of ISIS and Koenders distancing himself from his Ambassador’s comments.
