Watch: Outrage as Orban Bashes Europe for 'Mixing with Non-Europeans'
Hungary's prime minister sparked a public outcry after he criticised Western Europeans for "mixing with non-Europeans".

Hungary's PM sparked a public outcry after he criticised Western Europeans for "mixing with non-Europeans". 

Orban claimed "the west is split in two", arguing that countries where European and non-European people intermingle "are no longer nations". 

The ultra-nationalist conservative leader idealised an "unmixed Hungarian race", during his annual address at the Tusvanyos Summer University in Romania.

“We [Hungarians] are not a mixed race … and we do not want to become a mixed race,” he said, which prompted a huge public outcry.
