BERLIN, December 24. /TASS/. Chancellor of Austria Sebastian Kurz urged to give a chance to the new government consisting of the conservative Austrian people’s party and the right-the Austrian freedom party (fpö). He stated this in an interview with German newspaper Bild am Sonntag, published on the evening of 23 December.
“I ask you to give a chance to our government, and review the work done,’ said Kurz, referring to the participation in the Cabinet of APS. — Each opposition party changes when in power. This process, which includes the APS”.
Responding to the remark of journalists that Israel refused to communicate with Ministers of the right-wing, the politician stressed that the Chancellor will do “everything to resolve the prejudices of Israel in relation to the APS”.
“In our government programme refers to absolutely clear commitment to the existence of the state of Israel,” he said.
According to Kurtz, “Austria too later admitted complicity in terror by the Nazi regime”. “In this regard, my generation has a responsibility to never forget our history. We owe our resolve to fight anti-Semitism,” he said.
Simultaneously Kurtz voted against the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
“I sympathize with the state of Israel and understand its need for security, but the future of Jerusalem need to be clarified through negotiations by both parties on the spot, he said. — Unilateral decision not to put us ahead.”
The Chancellor also recalled that in Austria due to the migration crisis came to a lot of people, “imbibe anti-Semitism with mother’s milk”. “There should not be places of these views,” he said.
In his opinion, “Islam refers to Austria”, where there are more than 700 thousand Muslims. “But political Islam in Austria is not the place,” said Kurtz.
