(ANSA-AFP) - VIENNA, JUL 28 - Hungary's nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Thursday defended his weekend comments against creating "peoples of mixed-race," saying they represented a "cultural, civilisational standpoint". "It happens sometimes that I speak in a way that can be misunderstood... the position that I represent is a cultural, civilisational standpoint," Orban told reporters in a joint press conference with Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer during a one-day visit in neighbouring Austria.
