A member of Viktor Orban’s inner circle has resigned after the Hungarian prime minister spoke out against becoming a “mixed-race people”.

According to local media, Zsuzsa Hegedus, who has known the nationalist Orban for 20 years, described the speech as a “text of pure Nazism”.

The International Committee of Auschwitz Holocaust Survivors called the “stupid and dangerous” speech.

An Orban spokesman said the media had misrepresented the comments.
