This comes after the Dutch ambassador to Hungary, Gajus Scheltema, "strongly criticized" the Hungarian government.

Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto confirmed that the diplomatic envoy in The Hague had been withdrawn for consultations.

Scheltema, who is finishing his mandate in Budapest, said that Prime Minister Viktor Orban's government was using "tactics similar to Muslim terrorists."
