HUNGARY / GERMANY/ EU : PM Orban's 'Tanks' Talk Sours Relations After Merkel's 'Cavalry' Comment.
Hungary PM Viktor Orban meets Chancellor Angela Merkel tomorrow...under another cloud.
On Friday...Orban said he hoped Germany would not send any more 'tanks'...one day after Merkel had stated that Berlin would 'do everything to put Hungary onto the right path'---except sending in the 'cavalry.'
Orban was obviously referring to WW2's Nazi occupation...still a highly sensitive issue for Berlin...especially during these days of austerity anger directed at Germany.
For years...the EU and Merkel have been highly critical of some Orban 'reforms...calling them undemocratic.
